Goslings

Photograph

This picture was made in the Reifel Bird Sanctuary, south of Vancouver Canada. There are many Canada Geese in the sanctuary in the springtime.

The picture was made on an overcast day. The camera was on the opposite bank of a waterway from the goslings. A 300mm f2.8 lens was used together with a 2X teleconverter. A tripod and cable release was used but the mirror of the camera was not locked up. We often lock up the mirror and look through binoculars to minimize camera shake. There just wasn't the time to do that this time.

35mm, ISO 100 print film was used.
