Featured – A Vision of Flight Photography

This image was taken April 23rd,2010 on the Marsh Boardwalk at Presqui’le Provincial Park, Brighton, ON, Canada.
As/Is Male Mute Swan
Info: Nikon D300 , A/P, f 4.5, ISO-400,-0.3 step,
180mm fl, spot metering, 70-200 mm f2.8 nikkor lens

Now , this image is very special because I am not the only one who has it, this flyover was experienced by our little group including Lois Bryan, Beve Brown Clark, daughter – Renee Dawson and myself so I do expect to see them all post a very similar image in the near future.

    This was one of those moments I’ll remember forever. The powerful sound of his wings…all 4 of us standing there in awe….and then our disbelief as he actually circled back and flew right by us. Was AWESMOME. Great shot Mom :) xo
