Cranes in the Morning, Rederangsee, Nationalpark Müritz, Germany

Newer Older

During my August stay at the Nationalpark Müritz, I used the mornings both for the light as well as the animal life. Driving with the bicycle through the national park actually made you see lots of animals, including deer, right on the way.

My main goal, however, was 20 km away. The Rederangsee is a place where cranes stop by in autumn before the move on to warmer places in Spain and Africa. Not as many as elsewhere, but concentrated, and very impressive. You are alone during that time, and even without taking pictures, it was majestic. I have posted a panning shot before, this one is different, but uses depth of field to isaloate a small group of cranes, while still showing some context. I recommend to use large black magic on this picture.
