The fog rolling in here created a surreal atmosphere of enchantment as these majestic trumpeter swans returned to this small lake after a day of feeding in the surrounding fields. The tall tree in the foreground provides some added interest and also frames the scene. For more of my images, visit my website here: www.geraldneufeldphotography.com

C'è molta atmosfera in questa immagine! Un senso di serenità, di quiete di armonia! Bella la luce velata dalla nebbiolina, e bello il ramo della betulla in diagonale a comporre il quadro!

This scene presents to us a feeling of calmness, serenity, and peace.
the tree on the right frames the subjects nicely.
Very sound technically and visually appealing.
Great work here!

A nice moody capture, nicely composed, with good light management. I wonder what it would look like converted to b&w, might be nice, too.
TFS and have a nice weekend,

Nice to see you back. The light is wonderful here as it is muted by the fog in the BG and yet bright on the FG tree. The three swans show well and of course an odd number always works well. Nicely framed too.

Nice to see another shot out of your hand Gerard.

What a soft atmosphere you took, and the swans paddling silently on the lake reinforce this feeling. The sharp tree at left prevent your look to go out of the picture.

Great to see another upload! I seem to shy away from taking photos in the fog....or at least I have not had much success yet doing so. This one comes together very nicely, showing the reality of the weather here in Canada sometimes!! This one has a great mood, and reminds me of growing up in the Vancouver area. Fine work, kind regards,

A nice scene, with quite a few elements but great graphical effect.
Your capture gives me the feeling, as if it is a simple chinese ink drawing !
The beauty of the simplicity.
TFS and best regards
have a nice weekend

It is such an enchanting atmosphere, I love it the softer tone in the background than the tree branch. It also show great contrast and depth to the landscape. Like a painting here with beautiful composition.

une vue très pastel, l'absence de couleurs fortes rend la scène très douce, comme douces sont les lumières aussi. J'aime beaucoup cette atmosphère tranquille.

I like the mood created here by the fog. Mostly everything is so soft except for the tree jutting out. I am not a big fan of the colour of the frame as it looks a little fake, but that's just my opinion. Overall, you never disappoint with your marvellous shots of Canadian beauty.

in the thumbnail I thought this was a sepia but here you show that it's the result of the intense fog. Very moody one. I think title translates your image. Great job!

J'aime cette photo traitée à la façon ancienne. La brume estompe les arbres et les couleurs. Seuls les cygnes ressortent avec leur blancheur. Beau travail !
Bonne soirée !

The late day mist adds a very magical mysterious feel to this tranquil image.
The swans look very content in the tranquil setting.
The fore tree is vividly seen and brings the eye into this peaceful image.
Nicou (127734) 2009-12-15 3:49
quelle doucuer dans les tons, superbe image avec la belle brume, ces cygnes blanc qui ressortent dasn ces couleurs et tons, le bel arbre qui penche, fantastique ensemble.
Bravo et amitié

The title fits perfectly the photo! Beautiful place, beautiful nature photography, enhanced by the mist! Great framing and composition, excellent light management! Congratulations!

I find your picture a real pastoral picture.
Soft and fine for look at, more a painting.
Sharpness and clarity are very well.
Wonderful compostion and perfect captured. TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Istakli ste motiv umerenim bojama, svidja mi se prednji plan ove lepe fotografije.
Srecna nova godina, Paja.

Un mélange de calme, de mystère que donne la brume et de douceur avec la présence des cygnes, jolies teintes de couleurs
Happy new year to you
