Werner Bollmann - White on white


Last year’s winter was very hard. When I arrived at lake Tysslingen (Sweden) mid of March there was a metre of snow and not a single whooper swan. I waited seven days until the first swans came. As it were only a few birds it was very difficult to get a variety of images from the blind. This one I like most of all.

    Less is more. Here I like less in the sense of light and composition and more in the sense of two yellow bills.

    ... And I can well understand why you like this the most! It's a great image, very stylish! I like how you manage the OOF subjects (like with the puffins).

    great shot Werner! I like the essential in your composition, few symmetrical clean element, few colors, you stopped a magic moment...
