Swan Lake

Just arrived in Skye this evening after spending the last week touring all around the north coast from Edinburgh, and finally have a decent internet connection! Fingers crossed for some nice clouds and not too much rain over the next week!

 

Onto this image, I've been trying to photograph these swans that live on St Margaret's Loch in Holyrood Park for a few months now, but it has proved to be quite a task! Weather wise I have been waiting for misty mornings, which seem to have been pretty rare in Edinburgh lately. Arrive too early in the morning and the swans are all asleep, arrive too late and they are all awake and gather in front of you hoping for food and refuse to move off!

 

After a few attempts I finally managed a couple of shots I quite liked, so here is one of them.
