Great title and the water does look very icy. They do tread carefully as they enter the water and keep it open by their swimming in circles.

What I like about this is the angle of shooting and the composition, Ronnie, making it far more than a shot of the cygnets venturing onto the ice. Love the little grouping, inclusion of the gull, and of course those reflections. Even though it's a still shot, you have managed to convey their tentative steps so well.
