I was driving by this little "lake". It´s really to shallow to be a lake and to big to be a pond. Well, anyway, I noted the swans standing on a thin layer of ice. So I stoped and parked the car. The sun was out so I took some shots right away. The white swans were shining against the ice. I did see two mute swans and the rest is whooper swans. As I walked down the slope to get closer to them the sun hid again. Making the swans look grey. On the second shot they are on the way to enter the water in a narrow opening.

  10. Great title!
    These magnificent swans actually appear to be dancing...as gracefully as in the ballet of the same name. Oh to be there and see them for myself...

    Have a great weekend :)
