Randi said...

Så underbart vackert och gracilt!
Bra fångat för temat.
Svanar är verkligen supermodeller för fotografering. Jag har sällan med mig kameran på hundpromenaderna, eftersom jag tycker den blir för tung, men i morgon ska jag ta med den till min lilla sjö där två par svanar bor. Tusen tack för inspirationen!

Katney said...

Oh, my, that looks like it would hurt. Do they sleep that way?

pat said...

I love swans, but boy has that swan twisted it's neck into a weird position.

Thank you for your visit.

Randi said...

Så heldig du er som kan ta bilder av sånne vakre fugler. Og bildet var superb!!

Så må jeg si at du lurte meg litt på fredag i kommentaren på SWF...lett lurt trønder ja...hmm, ennå jeg ikke har tatt ett bilde av så mye som en list på soverommet....så måtte jeg inn å sjekke..:))

Håper du og fruen ha en flott ukestart.

Andrea said...

Garden Angel said...

Hei igjen!
Ja jeg har tatt mange svanebilder langs elven...men tror aldri jeg har sett en som har slappet av sånn:)
Har hørt rykter om at du har en svane med sånn nakke hjemme også! Du får pleie henne godt da!
Jeg har i respekt for mannen, ikke blitt med på Odd Shot...det kan hende du trenger hjelp fra din kjære til å forstå den;) hehehe

Ny fin uke ønskes dere også!
Hilsen oss fra denne siden(",)Min mann smugleser nemlig over skulderen min av og til...litt nysgjerrig!
Synes det er litt spennende med blogginga mi han også..hehe

Garden Angel said...

Måtte forresten inn igjen å gratulere deg med 100 kommentarer! Ikke værst!!!

Jennifer in OR said...

Excellent, perfectly poised swan, how did you get him to do that just for this theme? :-)

CrazyCath said...

I am very late on this one - but had to comment. That is extremely good. A very original take on "twisted".

Well done. Beautiful creature too.

Alix said...

Beautiful and imaginative take on the theme

Random Ramblings said...

Zooomabooma said...

Thanks for stopping by my Photo Hunt the other day. You've got many amazing photos here!

Take care :)

andrée said...

This is the most beautiful twisted entry. I can't tell you how elegant she is. I missed you on Saturday (I'm having lots of trouble with this Technorati linking and probably others are, also), so I can't even find half of the entries. But I'm glad I stumbled across yours while I came to see your Odd Shot.

ian said...

the swan makes something seemingly painful a thing of beauty... well done =]

Powell River Books said...

I'm a little late this week. Thanks for coming to see my twisted photos. What a lovely swan. You really captured its graceful movements. - Margy
