Making the best of a poor image technically, I couldn’t make my mind up whether I prefered colour or black and white so I made both. IS0 1600 is well over the top of my usual threshold for taking photos with my Canon 80D – but better that than no image! There is an argument for not bothering….. but it’s all part of the learning process – and I liked the sort of regal nature of these Goosanders.
