SOMERSET LEVELS 271 – WATER LILIES, CLOUDS AND SWANS, ON THE NORTH DRAIN (MONO)

The view westwards along the North Drain, on Tealham Moor; 24 June 2016.

Standing on the bridge over the North Drain, looking westwards along this dead straight, manmade waterway.  Here the Levels are below sea level, and this little bridge is the highest vantage point around.

The Mute Swans are always here, and the air often echoes with the shrill singing made by their wings in flight. 

And the water lilies are in all of these placid waters, as too – often – are the reflections of clouds.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  4. This is wonderful, bud. The lilies (mom’s name), the swans, (elegant, like me 😉), the clouds, whispy (like, what? I don’t know but cool!) Fabulously frameable. ❤️ XXX ATP XXX
