I was at fariburn ings not really paying much attention to the birds (odd as it's bird sanctuary) but looking to get Ferrybridge's steam clounds reflected in the water.
I had the 17-40 on at 17mm, polariser and an ND grad and getting a decent effect, when I heard some flapping to my right
I turned and saw this swan hacing a flap, so grabbed a few shots without changing a thing on the camera...
not ideal, 1/30th sec, F11 etc... but the result was that I got a swan shot that I think is quite different to the usual fodder you see.
It's dirty, dark, overcast and with it being just a tiny part of the frame, it still seems to dominate. Probably the reflection?
Probably my first ever swan shot on here...

What a great shot Ade.excellent timing and detail.
Excellent image! Not one that anyone can repeat, look after it!
lucky timing and a good lens I think Tom
i like the red contrasting with the rest of the shot. good exposure and movement in the swan.
Great shot, good timing!!
that's broken bricks believe it or not - didn't see them till I turned the polariser either
Different than usual indeed - great opportunity, and you made excellent use of it!
No, not ideal, but still a great grab shot mate ... that little bit of movement helps.
It works for me, great movement and grab shot
Nice one Ade, impressive speed to catch this beauty. Excellent.
Looks like its coming to kick your BUTT ade LOL...
Like it mate
Ok it dark n dirty but thats life..
Teriffic shot, one to be proud of.
Such an original shot !
Fantastic image and composition
First class !!
this just might be one of your best for a while - and that's saying summat, if I may be so bold Mr W
Great stuff Ade, I can just see you picking up the tripod and running lol......
That's one helluva grab shot!
Fantastic shot . I thought this would have done better
A great moment composed and shot.
fantastic shot, the scene alone is great, and with the swan doing its thing, well.
outstanding shot ade, very classy
this is as close to wildlife and bird shots as you'll get me
I'm a wide angled mutha after all, kinda suits the old swans in a way.
I've a bad back so was handholding rather than using a low tripod... there's a first for everythning..
you can get good results at 1/30th @ ISO 640 with a 5D, it's very forgiving thankfully. Did some of Ferrybridge and added lots of grain for effect. it's the future!
Tony - I'm with you, I got more of a buzz from this than many of the more normal mcfade stuff. There is something about opportunism when it actually comes off. A quntessence that's hard to pinpoint.
ta again and good night
Great moment, superbly taken. A feeling for nature Adrian. Ron.
That's a cracker Ade, great timing! Bill.
