Nimbus Of Winter (Pair Of Swans In Snow), Rickmansworth

Another quick, recent shot to show I'm managing to take some pictures beyond my 100 Strangers Project - though I'm finding that incredibly addictive.

 

Shot from the water - good wellingtons are part of every photographers essential kit, I reckon. I really like the nimbus of snow around the lead swan's intense expression, and nearly went with a hard close up to emphasise that. However, unusual as the diagonal out of shot feels, I really liked the main image as it was.

 

Having some minor issues with Flickr's map tagging - maybe to do with Chrome? Will try to correct this one in another browser... but for those unable to sleep for the half mile dither, it's on the lake to the south of the point tagged!

 

Hope everyone's having a fantastic weekend.
