Hello one and all,this is my first photo of this year that I have felt like uploading to Treknature.It has been a very trying year for me and sad as well.I lost my mom just this past February from brain cancer and all the while I wondered if I would ever feel like posting anything more to TN.I think my mom would like it best if I kept on doing so,as she so very much liked my photos of nature very much-especially my fox shots.So with the thought that I must troop on,come what may-I dedicate my first upload do my dear departed mom-who like the swans in my Image are truly free and wonderful-Mom this is for you!
About this photo:The great bird migration is on for yet another year with millions returning to Canada,just like clockwork.The swans you see in this image are but two of the millions to return from points south of Canada to live here in Alberta and points northwest of my home province.The swans like the American Robin truly are sure signs that spring has arrived.The winter of 2011-12 has been probably the easiest winter I have ever known as on February 10,I saw plants spouting out of the flower beds where I live and the birds have come back 3 to 4 weeks sooner than normal.Global warming is real enough no matter what the cause and to see butterflies in February sure has me convinced,given the part of world I live in.
I hope you enjoy these two lovely swans coming in for a landing with the Rocky mountains as a backdrop.I will continue to post more photos as my mom wouldn't really like it if I just simply quit.Life is what nature is about and I feel so alive digging nature,I get a joy just sharing her with you as I did for my mom.Keep, keeping on and share nature's song.
My deepest condolences for your loss. I do hope you and your family are well.
Your tribute to your mom and your though of your mom wanting to continue what you like is wonderful.
The photo is a stunner, with just the right amount of DOF to blur the mountains slightly without losing its details. Both swans are capture superbly with great sharpness and at a right moment.
Condolences from my to you
i hope you feel good nowe
so i look to this picture with a other look
and i hope your mother see many of this bird flying in the air
thanks i hope to see more of you
