I'm hoping to add images to my Swan collection this forthcoming winter. They’re fantastic subjects - full of grace, power and beauty, there’s so many reasons to photograph them.
Mute Swans are always interesting subjects to photograph, this image has an almost painterly quality that I really like, almost a surreal look that occurred naturally. The image are made with my fast 300mm lens set to f/2,8 to isolate the swan and soften the foreground.
