This is the same Osprey I photographed and featured on the blog a few months ago under the title “Osprey Hovering In Flight“. It was much closer when I took this picture, revealing much more detail. Please click the image to see a larger version of it.
Sometimes seemingly random items catch my eye. When I noticed this open coconut laying on the ground something drew me to it. Maybe it was the contrast of textures and colors? The rough, fibers of the husk surround the smooth interior of the coconut shell and the rich brown shell encases the milky white remains of the nut.

For this shot I used neutral density filters to get an exposure of 10 seconds at f/29.
The view of this lava rock at the mouth of a stream and the two large outcroppings in the distance reminds me of a young child playing near the shore watching their older siblings swim out beyond their reach.
