Having a camera while hiking is a great way to capture a memory or two.
Normally I would walk past the mute swan on Lake Junaluska when there is so much reflection on the lake; however, something said to take it. So, I did. Back at the computer, I took a second look. I still liked it.
I think it might be because of the triangles that are formed by the reflected sky on the dark water. It may seem like a stretch but any subtle graphics are that way. When used with the left and bottom edges of the frame rough forms resembling triangles show up. They also repeat that pattern across the frame.
Of course, the background works with the White Swan and the swan is active (drinking from the water). And I did have to crop this image so the swan could become about 1/3 the size of the frame.
Hope you like it…
