Taking off at Sunset (Thanks to raw)

Its15 minutes before sunset and I’m on a canoe, not so steady in light wind. I spotted the Heron landing from about 800 meters and dashed over there after waiting for him the whole day. He was standing on a rock just behind a small island. Facing him the sun was directly at my lens. So got a bit closer to get some of the trees to block the sun and anticipated the takeoff. Used raw to get the 2 extra stops and editing capabilities and got a few good images. Check the previous image for the follow-up.

Check the Meta.
