Rising Swan

Captured early one morning as the elegant swan cleaned itself in the morning light. The sun begins to burn away the mist over the river creating a surreal picture. This was a lucky shot! I missed the first time the swan did this posture but thankfully it did it again and I was there ready.


Nikon featured this photograph on their 2008 official calendar and also have a canvas print of it in their headquarters. It has also won several awards.


The Rising Swan image can be purchased as a fine-art print at Fotoviva Art Prints. Here is the direct link to the canvas print page.


Thanks for looking!
