SwansPosted: March 30, 2016
These images are all of the same swan. His mate was on the far side of the lake sitting on their nest and he had conveniently come alongside the walkway. I always feel slightly guilty that I never take any bread with me because he obviously thinks he’s going to get some …. but I can’t juggle bread as well as the camera. Usually there are other people feeding them, but not today.
I made a huge mistake in not watching out for my shadow falling across him so when I got home I had to delete a lot of the pics. Not only was it my shadow, but the metal mesh at either side of the walkway cast shadows too. Some of them I was able to rescue with a little bit of ‘cloning’. Anyway – I still had plenty that I was pleased with and again – I enjoyed making them look a bit different with my PSP and ON1 plugin.
