Photographer's Note

This was the most tranquil place I found for awhile. A swan quietly led her family on the banks and the boat sat there patiently to let the day go by. Outside of this oasis, the sun was getting hot, but that was welcome as it had been raining the day before.

Far across from this on the lake was a small island with a large brick castle.
You can read more about my day here in the Sauntering travelogue.

This picture was scanned from a 35mm which came out very grainy. I liked the grain, so rescanned it to enhance the grain, then saved it with high compression to distort the grain into texture. The plan was to take two undesireable effects to create a pleasing image.
