Swans - Tales From the Lake




























Swans look for soul mates
and once they mate, they mate for life.
If one dies, the other pines away until he dies too.
For them there's no second swan.

I like the black swan sleeping and the bottoms up feeders best. Nice photos.

Minunate imagini! Minunata melodie!

Clint said...

You have captured thought-provoking images, and I can't help but wonder as I look at your pictures what they are thinking.

Love the shot of the tails in the air!

James said...

Wonderful photos. I love seeing swans. I saw lots of them in Lucerne Switzerland recently but no black ones.

Brosu Constantin said...

Excelentă seria, îmi plac mult "portretele" de lebădă, iar cele "brunete" sunt tare frumoase!

G' Day From Australia, These photos of black and white swans in there natural element are brilliant. I'm wondering why the black swan in the second photo looks so sad, has he/she lost a mate?. Bottoms in the air photo made me laugh that's the best one hands down.

VertAnge said...

Faci niste fotografii tare frumoase!
Mi-au amintit de "Ratusca cea urata";)

Rizalenio said...

These are jaw-dropping images, Wind. I love everything esp the 7th image.

Bravo! :)

ADRIAN said...

These are all grand. I've never seen a Black Swan except in photographs. Lucky you.

Costea Andrea Mihai said...

Bob Bushell said...

Nice pictures, but my favourite is the swans upside down. That is funny.

ANRAFERA said...

Wind, congratulations for this preciousness of photographies. You realize works full of details and marvellous tonalities. That you have a marvellous weekend. Regards
Ramon

Traveling Hawk said...

Wind, ne propui aici o interesanta varianta pentru Lacul lebedelor: una multiculturala as zice :) E grozava poza cu cozile. Imi place mult si cea cu reflexiile apei.

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

These are majestetic birds - Well wone - and i wish you a happy weekend

Leovi said...

A wonderful sequence, the one I love is the picture that has those beautiful green sheen on the water. Greetings.

alicee said...

Foarte reusita seria, mie imi plac cele cu ciocul rosu. Apropo, unde le-ai gasit? asa multe si diferite :)

se-cret said...

My mother lives on an island in Scotland half the year, where there is a legend that a black swan contains the spirit of the long ago Laird.

Isn't it so easy to see how people came to believe so many magical, fanciful things about swans? They really do look as if they were crafted by wizards and sorcerers.

They are all lovely pictures, Wind, but I confess to like the one of the swans upended in the water. It made me laugh like mad. Looks like a bunch of submerged Popes, doesn't it?

Kaya said...

Wind, these photographs are outstanding. It seems that all these beautiful birds are moving, having "conversation". It is a mystery for me how you were able to catch all these moments. I like especially black swans on your photos. I saw them only a few times in my life. I think they are gorgeous.

Wonderful and very artistic photos. I enjoyed so much to look at them.

My very best wishes to you.

joo said...

What can I say - simply beautiful Swan Lake:)
Have a great weekend!

Superbe imagini , Wind!Chiar asa ? Cum faci sa ai intotdeauna inspiratie?
Mi-am amintit de acel mit menit sa discrediteze imaginea Romaniei:povestea rromilor care la Viena , in ciuda desavarsitei ei frumuseti, au transformat lebada in friptura.Eu cred ca aceste poze au fost facute la Viena , de aceea ma indoiesc ca acest mit modern a fost intr-adevar , real.
Lasand gluma deoparte ...este o serie extraordinara . Multumesc!
Duminica placuta!

Anamaria said...

your pictures are fantastic, and the blog's image quality too. Have a great sunday

T. Becque said...

What beauty you've captured. I have to admit the butt picture is great!

AdminGeografilia said...

Esti extraordinar.

Alberto Oliver said...

What a carnival of life, the swans.
What an example of self control and proud.
And this series that show it all.
Although old fashioned, can´t help thinking in Tchaikovsky and beauty in movement.
And for what you mention about swan´s loyalty, i think i am one.
There will never be a second swan.

I wish you the best today and in the week to come Wind friend

Ignacio Santana said...

Una serie de preciosas fotografías!!!...estos animales son muy fotogénicos...pero hay que saber cómo fotografiarles para lograr unos resultados tan buenos como estos...un gran trabajo!!!

Enhorabuena y un abrazo!!! ;)

robert said...

Nu am vazut in viata mea o lebada neagra. Interesant si articolul!

Despre fotografii... cuvintele nu sunt suficiente!

Life Ramblings said...

such beautiful swans. it must be amazing to see them in their natural habitat.

Gabriela Pana said...

superba serie... au atata eleganta

J_on_tour@jayzspaze said...

Great set of pictures once again Wind. Graceful and Peaceful looking animals. From my experience of trying to photograph these, I can tell that you have put a lot of work into this album. Despite all of them being good, I have a few favourites. 21... with the dripping water. So many you just want to look into the eyes and guess what they are thinking. 12... :-) .
Wow... what a meditation.

richard said...

Ultima e din parcul Titan?

pharaonx said...

frumos studiu. nu stiu dc, dar prima imi place in mod deosebit.

cartim said...

Super lebedele tale :P
Freeseodesign, nu stii ca pentru Wind aparatul foto este ca o prelungire a degetelor ?

Si da, lebedele negre sunt mai simpatice :P

Mahon said...

Gorgeous series !
These swans are superb, I like the n°12, this is very cute !
All your photos are beautiful, it is impossible to choose... :))

Bye**

freeseodesign said...

@ Cartim, pai tu nu vezi ca nu se mai termina pozele, nu stiu de unde ea le scoate. Adevarul e ca Wind face serii foarte reusite. Mai vreau :)

T @ Poppy Place said...

These are sooo beautiful :)

Look at those cute little tails :)

The shimmering water, stunning.

You've done it again. Brought more joy :) Thank you!

Have a lovely day, T. :)
