Meelis Kivirand - light moment


Sun illuminated kingfisher through the twigs, it lasted only a few minutes. It was quite difficult to capture the bird in that exact moment and it took for a week to catch this moment. There was no bird when was beautiful light in the evening or bird came and there was no light.

I’ve been waiting this moment of light for two following years, but haven´t met the bird anymore. I´ll hope that I will succeed again this year. It is one of my new year wishes and I wish you all a lot of great moments this year.
