Swimming in a reflection of the world up high;
Fluttering like a white cloud in the sky.

This was taken back in 2009 while I was on my internship in the UK. I still have many more photos from that time I have never shared. Lately, as I’ve been looking back at my old memories, I often stopped at this image – something about it struck me despite how simple and ordinary it was.
I enhanced this image in a way to reflect how it makes me feel – more heavenly – while keeping it natural.

This white mute swan was taken at Hampton Court Palace (Surrey, UK) on April 13, 2009 with an Olympus FE-340 – the same place I took The Greatest Treasure – so named because while the palace was extravagant; richly adorned with paintings, frescoes, moldings, statues, tapestries, and more (deer antlers, guns, weapons etc.), I enjoyed the garden the most and believed that even more than the wealth of a king, the greatest treasures all come from nature. The swan was swimming in this waterway reflecting the sky; and as that water’s surface was almost level with the grass, I could get pretty close to it.
Available as cards, prints, clothing, cases and more.
Here is another photo of this beautiful bird:
I’ll probably be adding more of this fellow on Zazzle overtime.
