Love the almost monochrome effect. I adore grey gloomy days.

You have had some fabulous weather event photos lately! Your knock on the sky photo reminds me of a rothko painting! It also reminds me of this painting:

Beautiful, - how fortunate (or clever) to have caught those swans in flight.

Pete said...

ewok: interestingly, it was quite bright in the other direction!

Sylvia: this is my favourite spot for viewing the swans

Char: ha! deceptively quiet - the swans and ducks were making quite a racket!

VioletSky said...

Nora: this is a bay where the marina is located, so it is much calmer than on the other side of that bridge you see in the distance

Jan: I do so look forward to your artistic comments! thanks for that link.

Hildred and Charles: well, I went to see the swans, which was clever, but I was fortunate to capture them in flight (mostly the hang on the ice and preen (and honk!)

Pete: I think you were one of my first followers, and I am so glad to have you visiting. thank you.

Ruth said...

Look at that. One of your best skies ever. Grey and white. Mmmm.

VioletSky said...

Ruth: and it was snowing!

Ruth said...

Wow, and right after yours I found Peter's!

Gorgeous shot, I like the contrast between the white swans and the blue-grey of the sky :)

Serendipity: the swans certainly shone against the darkening sky!
