Swans and Sunset at Welney

After spending Friday morning fighting with a dead boiler and a man from British Gas, it was a welcome relief to spend the afternoon at Welney photographing the swans with other members of Cambridge Camera Club.  The light was intermittent, but when the sun came out the yellows, pinks and oranges of the sunset were absolutely gorgeous.

As the light level dropped, it was time to try a few arty-farty slow shutter speed shots.  I particularly like the one of the three mallards.

During "last knockings" we were able to watch the swans flying in with a dramatic sunset in the background.

Huge thanks are due to Ann Miles for the loan of her lens.  She had to make do with "holding the baby" (her granddaughter) or borrowing my lens instead.  We all have to suffer for our art...
