Grey Sky / Black Swan Sky

While I was out and about over Easter, I saw these two Black Swans fly past.  Under a heavy,  grey cloud sky I thought the image would work well in black and white.

I seem to think I was right.




You can find more skies - and probably more colour - at SkyWatch Friday.

you could have just impressed us with a blue sky if you'd used a filter *wink*

I seem to think you were right too ... very striking contrast and I do love swans when they fly. Were you close enough to hear the woosh, woosh of their wings. Aren't they just amazing birds. Of course, our swans are white, but that, I assume, it the only difference. Beautiful pictures, Stewart ...

Looks like Autumn skies to me. Lovely in monochrome, which never fails to amaze me.

They are wonderful B&W shots, Stewart! Black swans seem so special! I sure hope you can get back to America one day, and see more hummingbirds! :-)
