Swans on a frozen lake

This morning I hacked the snow off my car windscreen and drove/skidded to Wimbledon Park to snap some shots of the snow on my Canon 7D. The UK is currently experiencing some pretty cold and icy weather.

I found some very cautious swans crossing the frozen lake, and put together this video montage trying to capture the moment. The music in the clip is by Jon Hopkins. (Recommend watching in HD on Vimeo)

  1. That was a great video Mark. So cool you caught that on tape. It’s one of those moments in time that you probably won’t see again.

  2. This is almost as great as actually being there.
    I could see there little feet sliding on the ice as they walked carefully across the lake.

  3. Beautiful. I was struck by their awareness of their own size and the need to tread lightly.
