Gone to See Patagonia 2015 Photography Tour with Thom Hogan. Day 4: Hosteria Helsingfors.

Wet Crested Caracara at Hosteria Helsingfors in Patagonia (southern Argentina). The bird was sitting outside the kitchen window in the rain (begging for bacon). Images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 55-200 mm lens (ISO 800, 200 mm, f/4.8, 1/30 sec). Raw image processed with Capture One Pro, Focus Magic, and Photoshop CC.

I think I am going to like this lens. The images were taken hand-held with the optical image stabilization (OIS) on at 1/30 sec.

  1. +Anthony Medici +Thom Hogan  Check the location for this image within G+. It appears to be about 20 miles off. However, when I put the same GPS coordinates into either Google Maps or Bing Maps it is right on for Helsinfors where the image was taken. S49°40.109 W72°53.070 or  -49.66894715020478  -72.88282871246338
