Nature Takes its Course.

Comments made by the photographer

Submitter's name: Duncan Paterson
Title: Nature Takes its Course.
Gear used: OM-4Ti + 35~80/2.8 at ca. 40mm + MD2, handheld.
Diaphragm: f4
Shutter speed: 1/60, I think.
Film used: Fujichrome Velvia 50. Scanned on a KonicaMinolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400 II.
Technical information: Spot-readings used to estimate correct exposure.
Subject information: The subjects are both residents of the Zürich City Zoo. I photographed them in their front garden on a crisp, clear Sunday morning as they enjoyed a little outdoor recreation (or should that be procreation...?) in front of a growing crowd of onlookers. These giant tortoises aren't as slow as you might think; this big guy certainly seemed to have a spring in his step!
