Last Frame: Soaking In The Scenery
Photo by Chuck Murphy
On the last day of a 21-day photo expedition to Antarctica, bird photographer Chuck Murphy had a chance to do some exploring on his own on Cuverville Island, just off the Antarctic Peninsula, and came across a lone gentoo penguin. “The light was good—fairly bright, but slightly overcast, so there wasn’t too much contrast,” Murphy recalls. “Since the little guy was alone on the rock and the coast of Antarctica was quite a way off, I had a good feeling that there was a chance for a shot with an uncluttered background. I got off about a half dozen shots of him hopping around on the rock, and then just for a second, he turned around, presented me with this semi-profile view, and raised his wings as if to say, ‘Is this an incredible view, or what?!’” To see more of Chuck Murphy’s work, visit www.boywithcamera.com.
Equipment & Settings: Nikon D70, Nikon 70-300mm zoom lens at 90mm, handheld, ISO 640, f/11.0 at 1/2000th sec., minor adjustments to exposure and contrast made in Adobe Lightroom CC.
