This picture is titled "Birds on the Beach in Flight" and was taken at the California State Park Beach at Half Moon Bay, California on July 29. 2008 at 10:04 A.M.. I used my Pentax K10D camera with an exposure setting of 1/250 second and a lens setting at f8. Shot it at while panning the birds as the took off around me. ISO was at 100, with a focal length of 115mm (that translated to 172mm with a focal length in 35mm film). Shot it with a spot metering mode and no flash for fill. Really didn't have a lot of time to think about the shot or focal length. Just pointed and paned and when the pelican was in view, click. This was the result.
