Whoopers on Ice

We finally had a hard frost in the south Mainland and this forced most of the Whooper Swans to Spiggie. The setting was perfect for some really creative photography using the texture of the ice and the light from the dramatic sunset. By over exposing, one could create really 'cold' looking images and as the sun got lower, the deep orange glows stretching across the water made for some nice opportunities with silhouettes. Great stuff.
