My wish from my previous blog has come true and I visited 'my' swans a few times meanwhile. Every visit was different. The swans have the characteristic to spend the night on the most quiet (less crowded) place which means on the other and not accessible side of the lake so a 600 mm-lens is nothing! After two cold nights the complete group was sleeping on the ice but just too far away.....10 meters closer would have been perfect! To catch the swans completely on the ice/photo, I needed to climb with my tripod and camera on the tussocks of grass for a higher position....not very stable when you had to wait in that position for the sun. But, I will not complain as I'm happy with this image.
Probably the next opportunity to visit this area again will take a little longer as my calendar is filled with appointments the coming weeks.
I 'm already looking forward to two weeks Christmas Holiday!
