SEA, SUN, SUNSET, REFLECTIONS AND BIRDS!

Sea, sun, sunset, reflections and birds!

After the wedding party of a long time colleague and friend, I was driving back to Luanda from Kwanza Lodge when I drove by Saco dos Flamingos and decided to take a turn left and drive around the salt flats. The tide was at its highest point, the sun was setting and this is the perfect opportunity to see many flocks of birds along the shore. And that was the case. I lowered my window, grabbed my Nikon D300s, mounted the  Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 fitted with the Nokon 2.0x tele-converter, switched to Aperture Priority and dialed in f/2.8, EV to -1.0 and the ISO to 400. Then took a couple of shots and the below is one of them.
