  • Angel

    I was very fortunate to get this shot as I took my eye off the ball while taking in some scenery. The Swan decided to flap his wings and I just rushed the camera to my eye and managed to get one shot off. I quite liked the result.



    Taken with an E-1 and 40-150mm at ISO 200 f8.0 and 1/2000 sec.

    If only the swan was facing the camera

    Like the sparkling reflections though.

        Yes I wished for that too but I was on a bridge and the Swans were feeding upstream so there wasn't a lot I could do about it. I was also facing into the sun so the conditions were not ideal. All things considered I liked the light shining through the wings and reflecting off the water which gives it an ethereal effect.

          Thanks Barrie, I was pleased the E-1 and 40-150mm nailed the focus so quickly. I would have liked to have had the 70-300mm with me but I'm not sure it would have focused in time. It really was a "grabshot" in the truest sense.
