Trumpeter Swans taking off.
The sound of the flop, flop of their feet on the mud flats as they ran to get the speed to take off was truly comical to hear

When it comes to distance shots with a lot of solid background, Fuji Natura 1600 does not preform that well in my opinion.

Film used in 1500 miles plus on the road.

Have not posted in a while because...

My wife and I drove my Father-in-law's car back from Cape Coral, FL to Port Huron, MI. Made a road trip out of it visiting and capturing images from Sanibel Island and Captiva Island, FL, Macon, GA, Smokey Mountains National Park, Cumberland Gap National Park, Chillicothe, OH and the Hopewell Indian Mounds, and finally Port Huron and the freighters entering the St.Clair River. And of course various side roads on the way.

Throughout the trip nary a digital camera was used save my cell phone used to take this image.

The film has already been mailed off for processing.

The medium format telephoto camera is complete (https://plus.google.com/108160569228914160735/posts/6ibKGntyYYi)

Total weight about 7 lbs.

Not bad since my D300 with my Nikkor 500mm f4 P lens plus my TC-14B teleconverter (total focal length 700mm) weights almost 9 lbs!

Completed the bellows for the 6x7 telephoto camera by adding mounting plates to each end. Actually there were 4 end plates printed and the extra fabric on each end of the bellows sandwiched between them and sealed with black silicone-based seal maker.
