2/4/07 - Swan Rising
ds20070204_0088a1w Swan Rising.jpg

Gettysburg, PA

The home across the street has a large pond in which two swans and a swan wannabe mallard live year round. In addition, the pond is a way-station for itinerant ducks and geese. I suspect I will have a thousand photos of these guys before I start thinking I've had enough.

PS - Crop, levels adjustment, slight contrast increase. Also produced monochrome, posterized, and poster-edged versions.

Dennis - If you decide you've had enough after capturing this - you've quit at the top. This is a wonderful image. V.

I like the swan's posture, and the little background duck makes this a charming composition. V
