Year 2014 collection. “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”  Helen Keller

It was a hazy and extremely calm day. Weekend and no wind. I went to check if the swans have arrived from the north to start the gathering in their winter sanctuary, a place just south of the Öresund bridge where they feel protected and the youngster start to make their picks for the coming matting season. It is a beautiful spot to observe them, their calm paddling in search for the seaweeds’ öresund rich floor. They were there, many have arrived, but the day was very bright and the settings of my camera from the day before in different circumstances further enhanced the brightness and I love the result. The swans in a far distant background are hardly recognised in this photo but the detail of the bridge’s ship navigation guidelines so clear reflection have replaced the target I was aiming for. Went home satisfied with the result.
