Lucky me! Yesterday it was a great day. First extensive bathing and then a few runs.
Here you see "Blondy" the white young swan. In front of my camera dooing a one of her trials.
I know there is some overexposure but the unique moment was the most important. It all happens quick and at 11 in the morning, with sunshine, light is very sharp and you don´t have time for camera adjustments any more.

Today on treklens het portret!

Believe it or not but I discovered that this picture has over 8700 views! Great to have so many visitors. (Disappointing is that I only got 9 critigues.)


If you like to see more swans have a look in my:
Treknature Swan Gallery and swan gallery on Treklens!, each with over 50 pictures of the swan family.

Hi Hendrik,
This is very nice. I like the movement you captured, the swan is very sharp and the BG with some panning.
Some of the swan seems over exposed but in such high contrast images this is difficult to avoid.

a nice panning moment....perfectly captured.
i love to see the reflection on the water...very neat image!

Renkler, kontrast, yansıma her şey çok güzel, bravo

Hi Hendrik -
just perfect - what a wonderful moment.
We can see all the drops flying in the air and the open wings are beautiful.
Together with the reflection in the dark water it's a dream-shot, thanks and greetings
