Last Shot!

Posted by
Bill Brown (California, United States) on 11 February 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Just before putting the gear away, I captured this last image of tundra swan at the preserve. The time was about 1 1/4 hours past sunset. Hopefully, I can make another trip to the preserve before too long.

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV 1/750 second F/8.0 ISO 800 800 mm

This is a truly beautiful moment with the fading light - it changes so fast at that time of day. You did real well with those lenses - thanks for the sharing, Bill.

Bill, Wow, this is really caught the light perfectly on these gorgeous swans and I especially like the wonderful reflections and softness of the water in front of these birds. The background is magnificently composed to really instill an excellent completness to this - a masterful composition. Sorry I missed yesterday's I need to look - it's been a typical weekend for me - gone more than here, :-)
