"Good Morning Swan"

Uploaded: April 01, 2006


I saw the break in the clouds this morning and thought I would try to catch the sun peaking through. To my delight this swan was busy with its morning grooming and let me capture a few images. The sun was only out for a moment so handheld was the only option. ISO 200, 1/125s at f/7.1

My old basketball coach always said "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity." Way to grab the opportunity to make the shot. #2601187
