Last night, with the sky clear and the air crisp, I took the opportunity to shoot the migrating Trumpeter Swans at the local Potter’s Marsh. Myself and at least a dozen other photographers were doing the same thing. The cool thing is that the swans were very close. I even had some decent shots with a 70-200mm. The shot of the geese here was done with a 400mm.
After the sun was quite low, I left the marsh and headed up the hill nearby to shoot the sunset. I was pleasantly surprised to see the tide in Turnagain Arm was low. I was really happy with the way the sun glistened off the mud and water and also the way the water and mud patterns swirled around. It was cold, but worth it.
I am happy to have the opportunity to do another photo workshop in a couple weeks. It’s a one-day fall landscape and night sky workshop being held at the Eagle River Nature Center. 12 noon to 10pm. $125. There are still spots available. Read more about it here.
