Japan, Hokkaido, Lake Kussharo, Whooper swans (Cygnus cygnus)

Last February, I took my surf housing to Japan in order to create some unique images at the well-known wildlife locations. This image of a Whooper swan (pronounced hooper) nuzzling up against my dome port is a dynamic result. I created this image using my Canon 5DmkIII and 17-40mm f4 lens inside my Aquatech 5DmkIII housing with an Aquatech 8″ dome port. I processed the RAW file using Aperture 3 and Photoshop CS6, plus Nik Software’s Color Efex 4‘s white balance filter.
