Whooper Swans

Its been dawn until dusk winter photography for the past few days with many great opportunities. With the lochs still pretty much frozen, I wanted to get more shots of Whooper Swans and today proved to be the best day yet. The light was once again amazing, but getting the close up shots involved moving some tricky manual exposure work to really bring out - but not burn out - the whites, and get the yellow and black on the bill spot on. Harder than I thought.
