Swanning Around


On seeing the title of the Weekly Photo Challenge of Graceful two photos sprang to mind from our December UK visit, and I had selected both before noticing that the one by Ben Huberman also features swans.  Well, too bad, or two good. They are the epitome of graceful.

The mist added to the charm of the scene and gave it a sense of unreality.

    Ah yes, Col. Swans are graceful – even when they’re riled, funnily enough.

  4. Love the swans, lovely photo’s, just wish the first one was homo sapien free, kind of spoil the serenity for me.
    Maybe I’m just odd.
