Werner Bollmann - Bright White


In early September huge amounts of Whooper Swans gather on certain lakes in northern Finland. They are coming from all over the Taiga – singles, pairs and families. Now they come together after months of solitude, forming big flocks, which soon will disappear southwards. Leaving the endless forests behind them, where golden birch leaves silently fall to the ground, and where winter’s darkness is already waiting.
