photoblog image Little and Large

Little and Large

A little midweek fun shot  away from the pictures I took on my recent Tenby holiday.  I saw these two by the side of a lake in the nature reserve I featured earlier this year at Coalville.

I initially thought I would use it for a wildlife competition in my camera club but then decided, having seen some of the opposition in advance, that it isn't good enough, so that is why I have called it simply "Little and Large".

It's a touching image, Brian, and well-contrasted!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, we have a comedy duo on T.V.called Little and Large which prompted me to call it that.

Love the composition with these two side by side separated by the piece of wood. Good colours too.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, I was lucky with the sunlight when I took this, and I like the colours of the little fella.

The swan says: " Ronnie, don't you ever think that there must be more to life than going for a swim, preening your plumage, displaying for the ladies, eating, drinking and sleeping? "

And the duck responds: " No Reggie "

A terrific photograph. I'm surprised the big fella has not seen the duck off yet!
Brian Walbey: Lol. Thanks Paul, they both seemed to be quite happy in each others company.
I think the duck is trying to avoid eye-contact with Mr Swan here!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, perhaps the twig is a demarcation line the duck mustn't cross.

One to bring a smile Brian. Love the well saturated colours too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, it was a bright sunny day which always helps to get good colour saturation.

"There once was an ugly duckling
With feathers all stubby and brown.."

But, far from it, Brian.. both beautiful birds and a very apt title.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, where did you drag that old song up from, I think it was a Danny Kay one wasn't it.

It's a jolly good rendition of the white on both birds, neither seems to be blown which so often happens.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, your right about the white, a lot of swan shots seem to lose all the detail in the white.
