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.

You can see thee original image here

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.
