Photo of the Week! Prepare for Flight

Nikon D90, 150-500mm @500mm, ISO 500, f7.1, 1/1250

Keeping up with my Trumpeter Swan theme this week; I made this image in Monticello, Minnesota where the swans congregation by the hundreds each winter. There is a power plant up river keeping the water mostly free of ice. Early mornings are my favorite time of day to photograph swans because of the added fog/mist from the warm water. This is a double edge sword however, the air temp is often below zero.


  1. Stunning!

    Several aspects must be present to achieve results as you have.
