The Landing of the Swan
So yesterday very late afternoon, I went out for a walk by the river with the intention to mull over a math problem in my head. But I took my camera with me just in case. And I’m really glad I did so. After lingering by the river bank for a while, this splendid swan swooshed by, wings spread out as its feet touched down and created a splashy rift in the water, gleaming as the sparkling droplets caught the last rays of the setting sun. I snapped this photo with the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens at its longest focal length setting. I do wish I was using a longer telephoto lens at the time since it would have enabled me to get quite a lot more resolution, but alas! I certainly was not expecting to meet this lovely creature on my walk, was I?
