Oriol Alamany - WINTER BLUES


It was a very cold but sunny february day when driving in a frozen road in southern Iceland we spot this couple of Swans (Cygnus cygnus) walking over the ice of a lagoon. I wait for some minutes that the birds walked to the edge of the ice, to make a composition of them with the winding line. When one of the swans bowed his head to touch the water I knew I had the picture. Happy New Year all!

    Beautiful image of these two Swans with the right light on them in contrast with the blue ice/water. Lovely!
