Wintering Swans

White Trumpeter Swan rising from the water

Swans arrive in winter and stay around till February. Just the other day a saw a wedge of swans flying by as I was out hiking. So, I’ll be looking for them as usual this year. Such graceful, lovely birds to watch and photograph, sometimes on the lakes, sometimes in the fields. If I can get out early in the morning I find them easier to spot on the water in smaller groups, sometimes called bevies. Further north, and I can get a glimpse of tundra swans, closer to home we see trumpeter swans. They winter with us for a short time, and then they move on.

Photography has alway been my passion. From the large, expansive landscapes, to the small minute images that make up our world. Having traveled from East Coast to West Coast, capturing moments sparked by the world around me, and inspiring my creative curiosity. Adventure, discovery, awareness.

I photograph, I write, I journal, I combine and I manipulate.  Textures, objects, plants, animals, sunshine, rain, all of these interpreted through my eyes, with the help of a camera lens.
