Photographing The Elegant Swan

I love these beautiful birds. They always make a great subject to photograph! I was lucky this week to capture some different shots to usual.

This first image was taken on the river. The bright blue sky was reflecting beautiful colours on the water, which made for a lovely backdrop. I love the tilt of its head making it look very regal!

Another photograph  I am proud of this week was managing to capture some swans in flight. I saw these two approaching from some distance. I wasn’t sure if they would fly past me, but as I was on the bank of the river I hoped they would be aiming for it! I was really pleased when they flew right past and landed next to me!

This is why I love nature photography. You can go out with an idea of something you’d like to capture, and the you manage to get something unexpected!
