La pièce d'eau des Suisses gelée, hier


On the icy Swiss lake, the swans were in love as befits Valentine's day! More about of the lake? See the label below.

... et les cygnes étaient amoureux, normal pour la Saint-Valentin !

Swans and humans are not always such great friends but who can deny the tenderness and beauty of that top shot?

This was a place that I liked even in the hot of summer. I think these swans could use some of that heat now...

Sweet! I believe that Swans mate for life. They are such pretty birds.

Je me faisais du souci pour les cygnes, mais s'ils peuvent briser la glace, elle ne doit pas être trop épaisse.. J'A-DO-RE ta deuxième photo!
Elle est terriblement evocatrice, après-midi d'hiver, douceur de la balade..So romantic!!

The swans look cozy even on the icy lake. And I like the people and tree silhouettes in the last one.

The first shot is so charming - and it is well-composed, too. A Valentine's Day card.
