What happened to the grass?

I just got back from a long day on my bicycle. I woke-up to a white world because it’s been snowing last night and I thought this was a good time to go out hunting. I never realist that we had so many goose here in The Netherland. I was actually going for a more dramatic shot, with al the goose flying away. So here I was flapping with my arms and making a lot of noise but only tree of them were scared of me (or had sensitive ears) but I’m very satisfied with this result.

 

Technique:

1/200 exposure

f/5.6

ISO 100

300 mm

 

I set the aperture as wide as possible and focused on the flying gooses. The farm is nice and sharp because of the distance of these gooses and made the ones that are at the front so vague. I only just discovered an extra bonus and that’s that there feet and beaks stand out against the white snow.
