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...
