|There's a bit of a story behind this picture hehe
When I was going through my shots for April looking to see if I had any decent shots for the Free Study, I came across an outtake where the swan had just poked its head into the water, and the shape of his head and the reflection made a great triangle shape. I don't have the shot to hand, but will post it later.
This was shortly after the triangle composition challenge was announced and an idea immediately popped in my head - I must try and get another shot like that! Unfortunately, time and swans didn't co-operate, but I managed to think of a title that would let me crowbar it in to this challenge :-)
This shot isn't quite the shot I had in mind, and I wonder if someone will say it doesn't quite communicate "thirst" - it's not drinking but dunking its head in the water, which was what I was trying for. Still, after I saw this shot I'd captured, I liked the splash and it stayed :-)
What I learned from all of this process - swans are un-coperative little so-and-sos when you want them to do a prticular thing grrrr :-(
