A Frozen Swan Song
On Saturday I went out to photograph Sandy Pond as a recent blizzard had changed the landscape into a winter wonderland. I was surprised and delighted to find a large herd of about 25 swans swimming around where I set up my shoot. They were excellent subjects and didn’t even seem to mind the closeness of our proximity. Perhaps they were just concentrating on how cold it was.
The next day I went back out to shoot again and the herd was still in the same place. The pond had frozen overnight and the swans were huddled together on top of the ice. The temperature was around -3.
