I took this photograph a couple of days ago – on the last official day of Summer. The swan followed me as I walked along the bank stopping here and there to take photographs. At this point though, it overtook me and drifted on by into the sun-soaked lushness. They are such elegant, graceful creatures – their travel seemingly effortless.
I love to be by the water – I seem to be most relaxed and at home when by a river, stream, lake or the sea; worries seem to drift on by and melt away.
