CT Swan

Winter Swans

As a change of pace I went to the Connecticut river, just north of the Middletown bridge. The last few days were spent in local marshes photographing frozen landscapes. Well, taking pictures of ice really.

I had hoped to get shots of some Wood Ducks, or Mergansers.  None were around.

There were a pair of Swans hiding along the shore, geese, and of course the ever present gulls.  Swans make great subjects so most of my time was spent following them. I did not ignore any of the others either.

The lighting was a challenge today. Ice and water, full sun, then no sun, etc. Typical New England.
