A beautiful picture, Walter. A bit of a pity that the mountain is cut off so abruptly but this is a lovely scene.

Thanks for the comment. I too regret not having more mountain. I was hanging over the water, trying to shoot from a low angle to get more mountain and keep the focus on the swan. When the swan suddenly turned profile, I had to shoot. It was all gone in a second and so I felt lucky to get this.

I'm not too bothered by the loss of the mountain! It looks like a featureless sky anyway.....

A dreamy like quality; yet complete and glassy focus, brilliant hues and an outstanding beauty.
