None Shall Pass on Flickr.
This Lost Lagoon Swan was marking out his territory quite calmly and firmly, taking up as much of the path as possible. While it’s a bit of a stretch to call the Swans in Lost Lagoon ‘wild’, they’re definitely not domesticated and I was quite surprised to be able to get such a nice, close portrait with the 90mm lens on the Fuji GW670, roughly equivalent to a 50mm lens on 35mm.
Since he was just hanging about, I got a shot with the 50mm f/1.1 Nokton as well, just for kicks. The Nokton is nice but, 35mm is no comparison for the tonal range of 6x7. This shot is scanned really big, 4800 DPI. View all sizes if you’re the pixel peepin’ sort.
