Mute Swan Dabbling

Mute Swan by Paul Miguel
Mute Swan, a photo by Paul Miguel on Flickr.
Photographed with a high shutter speed of around 1/1000 second. I got the aperture down a bit to increase depth of field, but with long lenses and fast shutter speeds you still need a bit of luck for the head to be in perfect focus. As is usually the case I was lying down for this one - with the frost melting underneath me..! Would like to work on this kind of image again if I have time.

  1. Beautiful! The composition is a very god one and the water splashes remarkable. Same problem for self - out with you though at Fairburn just the once...helping cure that! Looking forward to seeing your next swan shots! Look better in the water I must say!
