Photographer's Note

One of the numerous swans living on the Seine river. I went there on a pontoon to catch them flying. They stretch their neck to the extreme (reminds the Concorde) and fly generally very close to the water with a flutter noise. They look heavy, but are very fast. It's beautiful. I took just two shots but too far. While I was waiting, two swans came on the bank. The sun was already low and the river was only reflecting the sky, but the swans head was still in the sun. The best light conditions possible.
