The lamount of light has increased significantly over the last weeks, and we have already seen some migrating birds around here. We had some “last new snow” a week ago, so I had to trap the panorama gear and head out to a natural forest near by for some winter shots – they are quite rare for this year.

I also tried a panorama on free hand with the 400mm F2.8 tele-lens of some whooper swans, which turned out to work quite well stitched together.

Now there are hardly any clicks of snow left anymore, so we are waiting for the first real plants of spring to show up soon!
