2008-02-12-050_1 London Kensington Gardens evening light swan lift off

***Explore 39 March 1 2008***

 

This swan decided to take off near to me while I was weighing up the possibilities of sunset photos across the Round Pond in Kensington Gardens. That meant that the camera wasn't really set up for the image, but I thought it was too good to miss. Incidentally, swans can take off from dry land as well as water!

Basil Spence's Knightsbridge Barracks are visible in the background.

 

One of my most popular images, it went to 39 in 'Explore' on Saturday, March 1, 2008. It is still on 'Explore' today, 9/4/08.
