Late afternoon and these three migrant Whooper Swans glide in to join the hundreds already at Martin Mere, Southport for the winter. The black Paddles are lowering for the splash down and the last of the sunlight shows through the wing feathering.
Camera:- Canon EOS 1D Mk11. 600mm lens + 1.4x converter, on Tripod with remote shutter cord. Sorry but no setting details.

I like very much how this trio is placed in the sky. The graphic quality of the image overcomes the detail on these rare (for us here) whooper swans. Lack of light and long distance make it a difficult shot to achieve, and you did it very well, although some light on the yellow beak would have been a plus. Very good mezzo tinto composition.
