How far can you go to achieve a long found dream? Can you wait at one place for years and years to make it possible? A photographer named Alan McFadyen spent almost six years and clicked 7,20,000 pictures to capture the flawless shot of a kingfisher diving in the water.
Let's have a look at his work.
Alan McFadyen, a scotland based photographer, is famous for his wildlife photography.
Recently, he came into news after clicking a perfect shot of a kingfisher bird diving in a lake.
During his childhood, Alan was taken to a kingfisher nesting spot by his grandfather; time passed but that moment when the kingfisher dived in water remained in his mind. After almost 40 years, Alan decided to capture that moment and dedicate it to his grandfather.
Alan in an interview stated that he spent more than 4,200 hours to click that amusing shot. At starting, he used to click photographs five times a week and later he almost lived there in the hides.
Alan shared his experience and stated that he had made many changes at the site to make it possible. Another big challenge was to spot the dive. Usually, a female kingfisher dives in only five times a day.
Here's the perfect picture taken by Alan. Kudos to him!!!
