A recent visit to Castle Espie produced these photographs of swans. Iv’e made half hearted attempts to photograph the swans before but they or the light never really cooperated and there was no urgency on my part as they are nearly always there and I knew that sometime in the future things would come together for me. This time I spotted some taking it easy, it was a nice bright day and so I took some photographs. As luck would have it as I finished off and started to walk away I heard wings flapping and one came gracefully into land. I brought the camera up but wasn’t quick enough to get the actual landing. My fault – I should’ve been paying attention to what was going on around me. A lesson learned!
