Nice to read you Marilyn and to know you are having fun on your vacation 🙂
thanks for reading…we always have “fun” things happen when my sister and I are involved!
Great contrast, dear Paula! ❤
Thank you so much for stopping by Dina. I bet you are still so busy, as am I 😦
Yes!! 😦 Good to know we are two in the boat, Paula! 🙂
A lovely swan lake 🙂
Hi Alex 🙂 Have you recognised the score composer?
So majestic, and the music, again, divine, Paula 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful sleep!
I have 🙂 Thank you dearest 🙂
A little lipstick always goes a long way! Lovely shot Paula!
Hahahahaha Thanks, Patti 🙂
Wonderful contrast with that pop of color. Fabulous shot.
Thank you very much Sue 🙂
awesomely kewl shot 🙂
Many thanks Q 😀
Such a beautiful swan. Love what you did with this pic! 🙂
Thank you so much Linda 🙂
Nice. Very. 🙂 the contrast was not immediately obvious. All the better!
(Where’s your like button?)
(Ooops! I’d forgotten about your “quick mouse button” comment! He! He! 🙂
Pas de probleme, Brian! Bon weekend a toi! 🙂
Wow!! This is gorgeous, bet he was just waiting for his closeup:)
Thank you very much J. He was around for quite a while all graceful and well behaved 😀
Nice interpretation of the theme Paula. They look quite graceful but can be dangerous when they’re chasing you. 🙂
Very beautiful! Real contrast too!
Happy to see you like it S 🙂
What a splendid photo. Such detail of bird feathers and of water; a wonderful limited palette; and then the contrasting red of the bird’s beak.
Thank you for your appreciation Meg. Are you getting better?
Yes thanks. I passed on the illness baton to my husband. I’m better at it than he is! – more accepting at least.
Beautiful! I always love your animal shots, Paula. 🙂
That’s nice of you Lisa 😀 Thank you!
That’s a great capture for a contrast competition…
What a beautiful creature! The orange just pops too!
That’s cause of the black and white 🙂 Thanks, Kathryn
I forgot, who does the beautiful piano rendition Paula?
Wonderful – on my third listen : ) What song is you remember? Trying to find it on iTunes.
It is from the album 2000 Reprise (1990-1999): Movement 5
Wow he’s been around a long time and has a great body of work!
Love this shot! I had two swans and a goose off our dock this winter. They stayed all day and allowed me to walk out and sit about 20 feet away. I probably have 300 shots of them. They are beautiful creatures.
BTW, I like your comment on comments. I feel the same way, either say something and interact or go away. How do I get rid of the like button. I told someone yesterday that I was getting rid of it.
It seems that you have figured it out cause I don’t see “likes” on your blog.
Yup, got it. Thanks!
Thank you Lumar
Great combination of image and music Paula.

Beautiful bird and photo Paula.
Thanks a lot, Max 🙂
That’s a beauty Paula! Fabulous contrasts!
I knew someone wasa going to put a spot colour shot in for this week’s brief. Nicely touched up, Paula.
I appreciate this, Allan
This is a knockout. i love the greys in the swan, the whites in the water and the closeness of the swan’s pose.

Magnificent, Paula… So alive I have the feeling it will raise head any moment and slide away majestically, like owning the lake… 🙂
🙂 it did happen (in a split second post) 😉 Thank you, Ese for brightening my day.
Love the contrasting textures.
Many thanks Lulu 🙂

The softness of the swan’s plumage against the harshness of the almost grey waters – the fluidity of liquid against the solidity of the creature cutting its way through: both hard and soft, depending on what we bring to the metaphorical table. Thank you for the challenge 🙂
Thank you so much for this nice comment. I appreciate your visit a lot.
My pleasure, Paula. Your image made me stand back and really think: what did the artist attempt to capture? – always a good thing in my books 🙂

I love the texture, love the drama. Two thumbs up!
Brilliant capture Paula. A fitting image for the theme.
Greetings I am so delighted I found your website, I really found you by mistake,
while I was researching on Askjeeve for something else, Regardless I am here
now and would just like to say cheers for a incredible post and a all round entertaining blog
(I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to
read it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added
in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more,
Please do keep up the fantastic job.
Parabéns pela foto!
Sou grata 🙂
