A pretty swan on the local lake.

Swan on the Lake – with a Photo Tip

Digging through some older photographs, I came across this one of a swan on the lake.

Spring and summer can often bring swans to the lake. They always make pretty sight, somehow very calming as they elegantly swim along.

Swan on the Lake – Photo Tip

Capturing the image can, however, be tricky. The reflection of the swan in the rippling water is great. in full colour it is very “busy” with all of the reflections in green water. Rather than take it to a full black and white image I like to desaturate the image until there is just a hint of the stronger colours left. Look at the swan’s beak.

Weekly Photo: Seen in London

In a recent trip to London, actually while making our way across the city to Hyde Park, we spotted this picture.

Here’s an interesting mix of old and new architecture all reflected in the glass walls of two building through a gap between the two.

Red Breast Robin on a fence in heavy wind

Red Robin On A Fence in Strong Wind

A little red breast robin sitting on our fence. The wind was blowing hard, but he landed there and sat for a bit, feathers all ruffled.

There is always a robin in our garden. He, and, sometimes, his mate, fly around almost unnoticed, looking for food. In spring they normally nest in the bushes in the garden, though the red kites in the area are know to raid their nest.

He’s not very tame, so it is rare to get an opportunity for a photo.
