As I mentioned on Sunday’s post Schlei close to Ulsnis was full of birds – shelducks, all kind of waders and one cormorant, seen with opened wings in the photo to the right.

I used the geese and swans that were passing by to practise some panning. The light was fading and allowed for some longer shutter speeds to follow the birds in their movement. The result were a lot of photos for the trash, but two of them actually worked (not bad for being the first time, I’d say). The first one is at the top of this post, the second one is shown here.

The photo was taken at 1/40 second, with f16 and ISO 400 on a tripod.  The title photo has the same settings, with a slightly more open aperture at f11.
