Black Swans on the Lake

Black swans on the lake

Have you ever seen
A black swan on the water?
Their beauty astounds

NSW has had some torrential storms over the last week. Belmont got hit quite strongly – the winds were scary and some of the rain leaked through the roof, leaving us scampering for buckets and towels until it had passed.

Once it had all cleared I went for a short walk along the Belmont lakefront yesterday evening. I was feeling a bit stir crazy after having to stay indoors for several days and wanted to see what the weather had left behind.

There wasn’t too much damage thankfully and as I was walking along I spotted a family of black swans on the water. They were quite curious and friendly and I watched them for ten minutes or so before taking this photo.

I like how it came out. It feels quite moody and atmospheric. The dusk light was beautiful too.
