p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A pair of swans


I was in the East Pond blind at Jamaica Bay NWR and everyone was photographing the king fisher. It had flown off for a moment and when it returned a friend said it's back. I said "That's OK, I'm going to watch these two swans for a bit." This was the first time I've seen them form a heart with one in sailing mode.

Pretty shot, I wonder what it would look like as more of a wide narrow sort of photo (cropping the top and bottom some). It seems like all that water might not be adding so much to the photo.

Thank you Roberta,
Even at noon in the winter the light is at a nice low angle. The sun was behind haze and I added some flash

Thank you Greg,
Have you tried it? I left the water to include the reflection.

Thank you Don,
They got some nice images of the kingfisher while I was at this. I already had plenty of her.
