Hi all 😃 My entry for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.
This sequence of shots was taken on our recent ride to the Kelpies. We stopped at Helix Park on the way; this has two large ponds, one manmade & the other more natural. Whilst at the first, I was busy getting some close-ups of the plethora of ducks & swans when my wife shouted that a swan was coming in to land. Still at max zoom on my 18-300mm lens I span round to try & catch the swan in flight (they always seem to fly when I’m looking the other way 😂). I managed to get it in the lens & snapped a quick shot whilst panning rapidly with it.
It then shot through the line of the sun…
…where I lost sight of it briefly in the glare, before picking it up again just before touchdown.
After seeming to hang in the air above the water for ages, it finally touched down in a welter of spray, before gliding to a graceful stop.
…and as if nothing had happened.
