Swans by the Sea


A chilly wind shortened our walk beside the lagoon, but there was enough time to take photos of these graceful, elegant birds. 


Two swans swam in tandem with their wings fluffed up. 


On another day, this gnarled Garry Oak, still leafless, made a striking view against the blue and white streaked sky.

  3. Those are beautiful, Lorrie. When I was a kid our neighbor raised them. I thought they were beautiful but they can also be very mean. Kind of like an ex-mother-in-law. lol That last picture is a beautiful study, too. xo Diana

  14. Beautiful swans and you are right about the tree. Gnarled trees seem to have a lot of character which maybe is why they make good pictures. It has gotten cold here again--and windy, as if winter was back. It won't last though, we can be sure of that!

  16. Spotted swans a few weeks ago driving back up island from Victoria -- I'm always just a bit incredulous when I see them. They seem so magical, of a fairy tale, don't they?

  17. Hi~
    The swans are swimming in shallow water, which makes it much better for picture taking.
    Phew! Somehow I feel better that the large tree has no leaves yet. I thought everything was leafing and blooming there.

  18. What beautiful swans!
    There is also something magical in a tree during it's dormant time, like a skeleton silhouetted by the sky.

  26. I always look out for swans as their striking white feathers against the sun are so striking. They looks so elegant but taking off they are a little clumsy. Beautiful captures Lorrie x

  28. Lovely swans! I have seen them cover large parts of the river in the Yukon as they were migrating back North. What a neat gnarly tree.

  29. The swans are lovely. Amazing that it is too cold for you to walk, and yet they are swimming gracefully along in what must be frigid water. Nature is amazing. Best wishes, Tammy
