Cranes in mist

I have seen reports that the cranes started to arrive at Horborgasjön. Still it’s a couple of weeks until the cranes arrive to my area. But the reports inspired me to look thru my archive of images of cranes.

I have not shown this image before. I made this image back in 2009. A misty morning in the begin of September.

(Nikon D3, 600/4, 1,4 conv, ISO 800, 1/400s, f9)

Enjoying the sun

I made this image in April 23, 2005. The camera I used was my very first digital SLR. It was a Konica Minolta Dynax 7D and I had a 300/2.8 lens on. In those days a great camera!

It was a cold morning and the sun has just risen above the horizon. The cranes seemed to freeze, but enjoyed the little warmth the sun provided.

Crus crusIt’s never easy to pick one image…

Why did I chose this image? I’m not sure. The crane is a beautiful and magnificent bird. Maybe it’s that simple.

After I took the shot I felt that the image should be black and white. It dosen’t work i color.

I use the AF-S 600/4 on the Nikon D3. 1/1600 at f4, ISO 800 handheld.

Later in the digital darkroom I made the basic adjustments in Lightroom. In Photoshop I used Silver Efex Pro to make the image black and white.
