The beauty of a swan

The first week back at the school in Luzern, Switzerland where I’m teaching Visual Arts every half year. Since winter has covered the earth here with a layer of snow and also because there is more to see when you go by foot I decided to walk to and from school. Part of the way is along a lake (“Vierwaldstättersee”) and a river (“Reuss”).

While walking along the shore of the lake I saw a swan who was cleaning him/herself very carefully. For about 30 minutes I was taking numerous photos from a point directly above the big beautiful white bird.
