Theo Bosboom - The swan
Like probably most photographers do, I have the tendency to appreciate a picture better if I have had to work hard to get it. This picture however, has cost me only 3 minutes of my time and still I like it. I discovered this swan when I was driving along the south coast of Iceland and noticed the possibility of a graphic image. So I parked the car a hundred meters further along the road, framed a picture and waited for the swan to swim into it. It was taken against the sun, so the swan turned into a silhouette, which fitted very nicely into the empty landscape. I didn’t convert the picture into black and white, but still there is no colour in it.
Location: South coast of Iceland
