When did Winter arrive? I guess yesterday. Anyway last night I drove by the duck pond and the swans were close to the road and didn’t seem to mind me being there. The light wasn’t very good so I had to push the ISO up to 800. I could still only get 1/200 of a second on my shutter speed at f8.0 but that seemed to work well enough to capture a couple of images of the youngsters.
Not a particularly great shot but I wanted to capture the entire family just to show that they all seem to be doing well. The temperature was about 37 degrees according to the car thermometer. I suspect that was right as I could see my breath. I saw no machinery in the fields on my way home last night and I’m not sure I could have made an image of them anyway as it was very cloudy and that made it too dark.
Finally I’ll leave you with one of the last shots I took Monday evening of the sunset. You remember I told you I hung around for about 15 minutes and the sunset just kept getting better with every passing minute. It’s hard for me to pick my favorite, as they are really so different. I have a couple more that I may show you one of these days when the memories of the last two images have faded away.
Thanks for checking in. Enjoy your mid-week hump day and be careful.
