With the ending of the bountiful season of summer and the quick approach of autumn, I wonder about all the little birds, ducks, geese and swans I have seen hatch and grow over the past four months. Sadly, some have fallen victim to predators. Life is a tough struggle for nature’s little ones ….I hope this little gang of cygnets have grown big and strong….

Taken on a very contrasty sun-directly-overhead day but it was such a touching, happy family outing I had to get a photo as this is one of the super best parts of nature!

    They are lovely and worth sharing, even though you had harsh light (which I think you handled quite well). I especially like the background grasses and their reflections.

  • Thanks so much, Celeste. White swans in the sun … Ugh. I’m glad you liked this … I thought it was a nice scene.

    A reminder of just how fragile life is in the wild. To bad the sun was so bright Katherine, this was a perfect shot…Jules

    You did well Kat, I love the reflections, I sometimes find that if the photo is too bright I turn it into b&w and you can muck around with the contrasts etc., But I love the capture of this lovely family, we can’t always time our photographs, beautiful :o)x

  • Hi Josie, I will remember that but my wn black and white never appeals to me. Thanks for stopping by!

    Such a lovely image Kat!! I agree… one of the super best parts!! I love the tones, and the light – your work with the light actually, and contrary to ‘the rules’!! I also really like the soft, diffused vignette!! Gorgeous!! xxX

  • … I know ….the Rule of Thirds and I have to get better acquainted … Although I did crop my two boats one on the advice of a photography judge. (did not enter it but she saw it posted here). Thanks, Kim!
