Swan Lake Abstract

Dazzling golden light

Dances on the lake,

Golden swan lake copy

While the swan

Sails majestically on ripples.

Golden ripples copy

As the sun sets and twilight descends,

Lake and swan

Become a beautiful abstract.

(Summer is a gorgeous time in ‘my’ backyard!)

I’m selling these shots as prints, posters, photos, bags and cushions on my Red Bubble site. * End of shameless self-marketing*
