More Whoopers!!

Despite heavy mist all day on my last trip to Martin Mere, a few more images has come out of post production.

Every once in a while I get an image that Im just not sure about. Cant decide if I like or not. The first image here is on such example.

Part of me likes the feeling the picture gives of these birds in flight on the long cold trip to their winter feeding grounds. Please let me know what you think. As always your comments are very welcome.

Whooper Swans In Flight

The second image is a simple flight shot of a pair of whoopers. I must say given the poor conditions I was amazed how well the Nikon D3s coped and its ability to track white birds in thick mist was superb.


Both Images Nikon D3s Nikkor 600mm F4vr

  1. Very nice atmospheric shots.
    I've had the D3s for a couple of months and gave it a run out at Martin Mere with the Whoopers over Christmas and was also very impressed with the way it tracked the white swans against the white backdrop. Once again I was extremely grateful for the way it lets me shoot at high ISO!

    All the best,
