[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Painted storks are very common in Bharatpur and their juveniles are very boisterous. The Painted Stork nests colonially usually on tree tops.

It was early morning and I was looking for some sunrise shots in the marshes. This stork in it's nesting place really caught my attention with the rising sun as a halo behind it's back.

Hope you will enjoy this capture.

beautiful image with disc of sun finely positioned to highlight the stork. tfs.

A fine vertical composition in warm early-morning colours Subhrojyoti, which throws the stork and the treetops into a pleasant silhouette. A simple but beautifully arranged scene indeed!

Hi Subhrojyoti,

A photo sublime, magnificent composition, the handling of light is impressive. The silhouette of the bird spoke of the moment. Congratulations on this work.



Superb capture; great motivation for rising early in the morning.

I would recommend cropping the photo closer to the subject.

See my workshop.
