Love Birds

Luss Pier, Loch Lomond, Scotland. Taken at midday with the sun just behind me. Patches of cloud in the sky helped diffuse some of the sunlight while providing more interesting detail in the sky. I waded into the shallow water and waited until the swans were comfortable with my presence. When they began to search for food below the water line, I just had to wait for that perfect moment of synchronicity as they came together.
