Cambridge University teams train along the River Cam and this is one of the boathouses.
I thought for a minute or two that the heron was a model, a dummy, put by the water’s edge by some of the people from the boathouse. But then, herons sit/stand very still. And then it moved.
It was small. Not so much small of itself, but small in the frame because I was on the other side of the river.
I had a standard zoom that went out to 55mm (82.5mm full-frame equivalent), and still the heron was just a small figure in the frame.
Can you see it?
Really I took the shot to see what the heron would look like in the image, bearing in mind it occupies about one or two percent of the frame.
When I cropped it to show the heron in closeup, would it be small and blurry and indistinct?
