Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: On/In The Water

John is our guest host this week and he has given us the prompt of “On/In The Water”. Living on the beach provides me with all sorts of water pictures so it was a little hard to decide. Until I came across these photos – and well, they made me smile.

I had stopped by Huntington Beach State Park on my way home from work – just to see if there were any birds coming in for the night. I was driving across the causeway when I saw a huge white bird in the water up ahead. It was too far to tell what it was and I was keeping my fingers crossed that it would still be there after I parked.

I was so surprised to find this swam taking his evening bath. It was the first (and still the only) swan I’ve seen at Huntington and even though it was chilly out, I stayed there for quite a while snapping away.

A little scrub here…don’t forget behind the ears….

One last scratch and then a huge stretch….Time for bed.

Three Is The Perfect Number

Have you noticed how photographs with three subjects catch your eye?  I’m not sure why but I have noticed a trend in my photography.

But then, photography is like a story with a beginning, a middle and an end.  It makes perfect sense when you think of it that way.
