The waiting game

222/365
It was a cloudy showery day here. I stopped off at Whitman's Pond in Weymouth after I dropped the folks off. There were a pair of swans that I was trying to photograph, but together, they were not cooperating.....one would duck under water to fish, then the other one would, then one would look my way, but the other would turn it's head.........this went on and on......then one swam away from the other so I couldn't get them both in one frame. Needless to say, my groceries were melting in the car and I couldn't wait it out...... to get the shot I wanted. I settled for just one swan......at least I got the Fall colors in the background to add a little something to this shot.
The Specs:
Nikon D90, 18-200 mm lens, ISO 200, 1/125, f5.6, -2/3ev
Today's BONUS PHOTO from VT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Camel's Hump is Vermont's third highest mountain, and one of the most recognizable mountains due to it's distinctive profile.

    the one swan. The colors are so pretty in the
    background.

  4. Hi Greg,
    I am not sure where I was when I took this. I will find out for you. Check back in a day or two and I will have an answer for you. :-)
