[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Almost the end of January and they are still here...
Autumn and early winter were warm and the swans stayed.
Now they must leave. The sea in the background is already covered with ice.

This was taken from the same spot and same time as my previous post, just to another direction. It was cold, dark and the blue color is not a mistake of the white balance :-)

Took a few images and was lucky to get one sharp image - enjoy!

Hi Shir

What a lovely catch and in what an interesting environment.
This is another "freezing" shot judging by the colors, but i like it a lot because of that exact intense atmosphere.
The details and pose of the swans are wonderful and very well captured!
Also the DOF here is very nice and the perspective is amazing, with plenty of details in a wonderful blue-ish BG.
Lovely composition and POV, too.

Bravo and TFS

Best greetings from Poland!

Hi Shir,

A very nice landscape with the 2 mute swans,well captured and I like the blue color tones,TFS


What can be said? It is a beautiful image. Well composed, lovely POV, great DOF. That blue color makes you shiver and wish you were sitting in front of a roaring fire with a mug of hot chocolate.

Hola Shir,
La imagen es preciosa, la composición y la luz son geniales. Saludos

Hi Shir,
Both this one and your previous are lovely images.You have caught in this one such a wonderful and almost mysterious atmosphere making it look like a scene out of a fairytale.I also really like the divisions of depth in the image making it seem to go on for ever...drawing you in!A work of art my friend...TFS.
Regards, David
