"Oh, what a wonderful World"

Afgelopen Zaterdag spotte ik deze zwanen, een beetje laat in het seizoen lijkt me voor kleintjes. Achter de linkse zwaan zie je er nog twee. Ik hoop dat ze sterk genoeg zijn als de winter begint.

Last Saturday I spotted these swans, a bit late in the season for the little ones. Behind the left swan there are two more of them. I hope they are strong enough when winter starts. Click on the image for a better view.

Witte zwanen, zwarte zwanen, wie gaat er mee naar Engeland varen. etc.
Prachtige opname, vooral de schittering van het water is heel mooi vastgelegd op de gevoelige chip.

It does seem a little late for such a young swan. Nice capture with the sun's reflections on the water (which is what I think the previous comment said too).

Good shot of the water. The swans are nice to but that water just adds something to the picture.

Lovely! I especially like that the shot is basically monochrome except for the swan's bills.

Great picture Dick. Absolutely stunning! The Flying Dutchman is also an incredible shot...
Sorry for having been a bit absent lately, but I was abroad on a professional trip last week. One day I’ll probably show some pictures from an unusual destination...
Trying to recover some time, I’m posting on Germany (Koblenz, December 2005) on Blogtrotter.
Enjoy and have a great week!
