Running swan

Atsufumi Suzuki



It's a great honor to win the prize in Nikon Photo Contest.Every year I have long tried to catch the moment in which the swans are running or landing on the river, splashing the water.And this time I think I could finally do it.

At the river side where about 100 swans stay every winter, which locates about 30 minutes' drive from my house.This time I used telephoto zoom lens(1 NIKKOR 30-110mm) with some teleconverter.I think great people can even take super looking-far photography by lightweight equipment.
