Although in fits of sprinkles, the rain fell just often enough that I cowered under a roof on a pier instead of taking the long beach walk that was planned. While waiting, I practiced my BIF (Birds in Flight) photography without much success. Eventually I noticed this nice, even though somewhat static, scene and zoomed the 100-400mm lens on the 7D to this composition. The result was processed from RAW in ACR but otherwise pretty much untouched and not cropped.
To some, this may be a cluttered picture but to me this is a vertical format with a horizontal top. The horizontal portion is another pier in the background and a bridge even farther in the background.
