Beautiful scenery Ian, looks a bit like the "Rietputten" where I like to wander around. LIKE! Greetings Berend
Perfect composition. Fantastic shot. LIKE
Cheers from Hong Kong, Jeff
Greetings Berend. Wetlands are always interesting areas for photography, especially if there are some 'hides' or one has a long lens. Even from this distance the wary swans had spotted me and began their move to paddle away. And I enjoy your photography that derives from the Rietputten. Just let me know when a stray black swan is seen there.
Hi Jeff. Thanks for the compliments. Black swans are one of our icons.
Regards from Brisbane,
Thank you very much for your kind comments. I was at Lake Moogerah recently & there was a flock of at least 50 black swans but all very wary of my camera. Beautiful shot Ian complimented by the grasses. LIKE!.. Regards Jack
Good morning Jack,
I grew up with black swans breeding nearby (in the Yabba Valley), but that doesn't appear to happen in the area any more. So to learn that there are 50 or so on Moogerah is great news. I see more black swans when I am in New Zealand than I see here, and this year black swans were added to the shooters' list in NZ!
Amazing scenery ! very good image ! like !!!
The riverine plains of inland Australia, are diverse landscapes even though it seems to be a monotonous, endless plain. But as the wet and the dry seasons occur, each brings a transformation to the colours, vegetation and especially the wildlife.
Here the black swans have taken up residency and established a quiet rookery where they are breeding cygnets.
Best wishes from Queensland,
