That is beautiful Edna. Swan Lake at the Royal Ballet. Well done. x

Swan Lake, beautiful Edna, you have captured these graceful creatures perfectly and the way you have caught the reflection of the trees on the dark still waters is just marvellous. Love it, thank you.

Edna, that is just beautiful, as Dave has said it's a magical scene. I hope you will take more photos for PAD

An enchanting picture full of thought and imagination . One to contemplate while listening to some tranquil piano .

Edna,that is a lovely shot of two beautiful swans...the contrast between light and dark is perfect.

I must say I'm also gobsmacked, well done Edna.

It's a good job the Swans are white otherwise we wouldn't see them. Lovely photo of Nature minding it's own business.
Happy new year Edna.

I so agree with everyone else's comments Edna. Absolutely fabulous, thank you.

Spectacular, should be on a book cover.

Comment by: Rev David Long on 30th December 2023 at 15:32

A great pic - it would have made a very good image for tomorrow - as the Swan Song of another year of great Photo-a-Days.

Let me go into nothing
discard all I own
bathe into dreams
beyond those I’ve known
Let me sit and just watch it
and forget who I am
then bow to what’s better
and embrace whilst I can ..

If there was a Wigan World competition for photo of the year this would have been a great contender.
I don’t know why we don’t have a competition. I have just got the CountryFile calendar and this is just as good as any of the photographs in it.

Comment by: Derek Platt on 30th December 2023 at 16:59

Wonderful Edna, all I can say is HUAWEI!.

Comment by: Edna's Dream on 30th December 2023 at 17:51

Silently moving never apart
The two necks shaped like one great heart ,
Is this a sleep I can't depart ,
Are they real or replicate
As in a dream or make-believe ?
They glided out from shady reeds ,
Yet I am awake so not deceived ,
And saw the swans at Haigh one eve .

Nice one Poet, and compliments Edna's photo wonderfully.

Comment by: Phil Taylor on 30th December 2023 at 21:41

A great photo Edna, it has an ethereal quality.

Comment by: Edna on 30th December 2023 at 23:58

Thank you every one, for your lovely comments, this was taken coming back from a walk with my son on boxing day. It was just going dusk, and it was a spare of the moment thing, so happy you like it, and Happy New Year to you all!! x
