Swans at Sunset

I made this collection Sunday afternoon at Mariager fjord. At the moment hundreds of swans and other birds are resting at Dania.

Here Scandinavia's only salt factory started production in mid-1970s.. hot salty water from the production runs out in the fjord and make the area ice-free even in the coldest winters.

  1. Hi Jesper,
    I see you use the Nikkor 300mm f2.8 with the TC 14 a lot.
    Have you ever used other TC combination (17 and 20EIII))?
    Best wishes for 2011

  2. Hi

    Yep, its a great combination!

    I've had the TC-17E, TC-20E II and TC-20E III, but sold them because I think they eat to much light and sharpness - for my liking! I'm an "über sharpness freak"!!!

    All the Best to you too in 2011.

    Jesper T.
