Preening mute swan – Monochrome Madness

This is my image for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness, Week 18. Check out the link if you’re interested in seeing some great black and white shots.

I photographed this mute swan while I was in Geneva, Switzerland, last winter. There is always quite a collection of them along with various types of geese, ducks and of course, gulls. The water is so clear and pristine-looking that in the shallows they almost appeared to be floating on air.

    • Aside from documenting places I visit and things I observe in my world, the primary goal of my photography is currently as a starting place for my art. I’m just now starting to put some time into developing that side of it. I’m a color addict, but have detoured into B&W after being inspired by Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge. I’m so pleased that you like the swan image and that you think it looks like a drawing/etching. 🙂 Thank you so much for your comments. 🙂
