A Relaxing Day of Bird Action Photography

The conditions promised a productive day of bird photography in Grímsey. The plan was to try to get a shot of Arctic Terns with reflection and re-create a favorite shot. This turned out to be a great day. The relaxing atmosphere at the Sandvíkurtjörn pond was wonderful.

The goal of this video is just to go out there with the camera and long lenses and try to make a video about it. Starting out there is no real plan. Just go out and enjoy a day of wildlife photography.
