This guy was all alone, and stayed rooted to the same spot on an island in the middle of the lake for the whole time we were there.
The rest of the lake was full of geese and ducks swanning around having fun… but this fellow was like a sad statue. Solitary and resolute. An outcast.

    Very interesting processing and editing, fits the mood of the story well. Poor fellow! Wonder if he was sick or injured?

  • Thanks Angie. This is my new favourite :) I printed it out A3 size and it’s hanging on my wall. I love it up large where I can see all the detail. :) (Does that sound conceited?) LOL.
