I saw this scene unfolding as we drove through snow along the coast today-it was a grab the camera, jump out of the car situation and foolishly I did not have the presence of mind to check my settings or even notice them in the viewfinder as I was concentrating on following the action. Shooting through fine snow and sea smoke at much too slow a shutter speed I managed to salvage a few shots of this guy trying to steal a meal from a disappearing loon... Did I mention it was 4* with a steady 20mph breeze? December 29, 2017.
