Tara at Sticky Fingers has started a new feature called The Gallery. The idea is for bloggers to post photographs on a particular theme. There is a new theme every other Friday and the idea is for people to be able to view some of the really good photography that is out there in blogland.
The theme for the first Gallery is Beauty. Some wonderful photos have already been posted on a variety of topics.
My choice is one that I took about four years ago up in the Lake District. It's of a swan meandering across the lake at Rydal Water. The swan had just lifted her head out of the water and I managed to snap the moment as she raised her head and looked at me. What I really love about the picture is her serene pose and the glittering droplets of water that are captured in her feathers.
When I look at this picture it makes me feel so peaceful - it was a great weekend in one of my favourite places.
