Common goldeneyes and mute swans

This set shot this morning at Lake Littoistenjärvi shows a group of male common goldeneyes having their rituals and mute swans having their fights. And a couple of poses, too.

Equipment: Olympus E-M1X + M.Zuiko 300/4. I must say I’m very pleased of the performance and lightweight of this combination.

Clear and cold morning

This “winter” has been one of worst I remember in photography point of view. But last week there was one cold and clear morning at Lake Littoistenjärvi, hurray! The lake was almost frozen, temperature was about -10 centigrades at the sunrise time and the swans were resting on the lake. No actions, the swans were saving their energy, but the light was beautiful.

Equipment: Olympus E-M1X + M.Zuiko 300/4 + MC-14, E-M1 Mark II + M.Zuiko 40-150/2.8.
