‘Til the crows come home
Every evening, in the trees along Still Creek in Burnaby, the Vancouver area’s population of crows gathers to roost and it is a spectacular thing to see and hear. We went out tonight to see them gather, and I managed this shot in the dying light of the day. I need to go back some time, with tripod and a plan of attack.
Tech stuff: Shot at 1600 ISO on my Canon G10, in program mode with a -1 EV to hold the setting sun. Noise reduced with Noise Ninja, which I purchased especially for this occasion.
As well as settling into the trees, the crows cover nearby buildings as they wait for dark. This was shot with my Canon SX100 IS, also on program, at 800 ISO.
