• The photographer spent 6 years to take a picture of your dreams
Wildlife photographer from Scotland Alan Macfadyen finally managed to catch the one perfect shot, which was hunted long 6 years. He wanted to take a photo of a kingfisher diving into the water without a splash. To do this, Alan came to the same wild lake several times a week (on average 100 days a year) and hard to photograph birds.
Love of nature Alan gave his grandfather. 40 years ago, when her grandson was 6 years old, he showed him the lake, where kingfishers nest. When Macfadyen grew up and became a photographer, he went to the place to capture the beauty and agility of these birds.
He removed 720,000 frames until you get the perfect shot. There he is:
"I wanted to make a photo of a kingfisher cuts reflecting surface of the water accurately and without a splash."
"As a child, I just fell in love with these nimble birds - other than fishermen, and I wanted to show them in all their glory."
"for pictures not only I had to catch the right moment, but Kingfisher was to fulfill all perfect."
"I shot at 600 frames per day, but none of them seemed to me perfect."
"I have never regretted that he spent so much time - because I love my job. I am proud that I was able to finally fulfill his purpose ", - says Alan.
