This is my contribution for this weeks Monochrome Madness challenge organised by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky. You can see Leanne’s main post here later today.
When taking this shot I was drawn to the symmetry of the swan and its reflection. I tracked the swan while it was moving across the water trying to keep the swan in the middle of the frame. I chose black and white for this shot because I knew the contrast would work well with the white of the swan and the darkness of the murky water.
