Amazingly if these owls weren't white i think one could often walk right by and not discover them. They blend in so well with the grasses, & abundant driftwood... Josh, Tin, and myself, were able to slowly advance on this cutie, and i actually found my dof working too my advance, along with a low pov.. that created this dof wash...The pacific coast, and particularly Washington shores, are cluttered with tons of driftwood, and debris!!
This image was nearing the end of a full day of shooting 6am, to 6pm... The warm light was bathing this pile of driftwood, along with this most cooperative Snowy. Brfore the sunset i went to iso 3200, when this beauty, proceeded to climb higher up on the pile to begin her evening hinting surveillance...
