Swans afloat

Afloat, to me at least, means water of some sort. Today while I was out running around the lake, I saw this beautiful sight. Two swans serenely afloat on the lake, in the crisp morning light. I had to stop and take a photo!

They look so calm and serene don’t they?

Good morning

Good morning

I liken myself to a swan in as much as I might look quite calm and serene on the surface but underneath I’m paddling vigorously just to stay afloat.

This is my interpretation of afloat for this week’s photo challenge but there are many other ways that afloat can be interpreted.

      Thanks for the comment Desleyjane. I was in Canberra this morning on my way home and did a run around Lake Ginninderra (as you do!) and it was so lovely I just had to take this pic.

          It’s a small world! I like Canberra a lot. I had a lovely time up in sunny Redcliffe (thanks for organising the rain to stop) and now home via Canberra. But cooler down this way than up north but not as bad as I was expecting!

            Such beautiful air in Canberra, crisp and lovely.
            My pleasure on the rain front (pun intended). 😄

      Thanks Dawn, I think the softer colours are due to the autumn morning light. It was a beautiful day to be out.

    Love your photo for this week’s challenge. So serene, and but you’re right. They’re little waddle feet are probably working at full speed to keep them afloat! Always good to look calm on the outside and people might find you more friendly and stop you for a chat 😀
