Swans in Rostellan Lake

By Rory O'Toole

I’m sitting here scanning a few recent rolls of film.  You know that feeling, as you see the shots for the first time, and you feel a bit crestfallen – are there any decent shots here at all? And then one comes along that looks like it might have some potential. So this is the first that grabbed me. A bit. I’m not really into pictures of birds or animals, but I kinda like the pure black and whiteness of this one. There wasn’t much colour in the air that day anyway. It was snowing, and most of the rest of the lake was frozen. So the white swans in the black water was pretty much how it was! Shot on Ilford FP4 with a Nikon F90X and 50mm f1.8.
