Swan Lake

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Wed, 04/14/2021 - 20:03

The ponds around Herrnstein Castle near Ruppichteroth in the Rhein-Sieg district always offer opportunities for beautiful animal photos. Today the waters were mainly populated with many mute swans, but rust and Canada geese as well as pond and coot also attracted attention. We had a tripod with us for the Nikkor 200 - 500 mm f / 5.6, but this beautiful lens can also be used by hand thanks to the VR II image stabilization. The first recording of this post is therefore a "camera puller". During the recording, one tries to synchronize the movement of the camera with the movement of the object, which in this case worked surprisingly well when focusing on the swan's head - a bit of luck is required.
