An image that illustrates how clean the Thames has become. A very positive sign Derek and that clear light put the emphasis on them !!

A beautiful composition Derek, on which really captures this wonderful morning scene superbly well. The glistening light and the swans certainly provides for a really pleasing image.

Thanks everyone. I was surprised the swans allowed me to get so close. I think they were too busy preening and cleaning their feathers to worry about me.

I really like this Derek, especially the composition, the swan in the bottom corner. Like how the long shadows and row of swans lead you to that early morning light - excellent work!
