Taken way back in 2006

Hi everyone, hope you are having a chilled weekend

Been looking back through my old RAW files and I thought Id revisit this one.

1/13 sec at F22, ISO 200

Large version is a bit better, if you have the time

Thanks for looking.

Alan.

that is some sky and the yellows you've pulled out are fantastic. nice swan action - good to see them actually doing something

the bottom left looks artificially bright for some reason, tone mapping or dodging maybe?
