About this image

This hand-held photograph shows what you can do without lugging a tripod and other equipment around. It is not perfect and could be improved significantly as follows: use a lower ISO, better focus and a better lens. I've now bought a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens and will try again in 2017.
