Rough Waters

rough water swansFriends, these Trumpeter Swans are swimming in the rough waters of Phantom Lake in Crex.  I used the detail extractor in Color Efex Pro 4 to bring out the white feather details. These birds have now gone south, but i still have the images in my head and in my hard drive to keep me warm in this cold weather. I went to Crex yesterday and found a few hawks, eagles and redpolls to keep my camera happy.Stay tuned for these birds in the near future.   til Tomorrow MJ
