Tim's One Photograph a Day

Swans on the Birmingham Old Main Line, Tividale.

Making the most of a grey day.

The Birmingham Old Main Line Canal looks rather different to the shot from a couple of days ago. Storm Dennis is doing his worst. I was hoping to find a few Mallards so I could post “lovely weather for ducks”, but even they must have taken to shelter! However, there were these cygnets and a couple of coots around, so I have had to make to with this shot of one of the coots and these Swans.

As you can see, the water is a little choppy. It is also a bit “rock ‘n’ roll” on the boat too. Still, it could be worse and at least we’re not moored under any trees…
