Black Swans at Travis Wetlands


There are a lot of black swans at Travis Wetlands, but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful or graceful. To me it looked like these two were about to kiss!

  1. That’s quite a picture! I especially love your use of lighting technique to capture these black swans under the shadows of a tree with only the reflections of the blue skies upon the water whilst letting the background horizon gradually become overexposed into white. I dare say this creates a picture perfect postcard with these swans so perfectly positioned too. Michelle, you just gave me an idea, perhaps a mission in photography that I may have to attempt for myself!

    Albeit I don’t know of any black swans in my area, we do have white swans and Muscovy Ducks which should photograph quite well under similar lighting, so I may have to give this technique a go. Thanks for the beautiful photo and the inspiration!
