Whilst visiting Conkers, in Leicestershire, UK, I took this picture of swans coming towards me. The light was very dull on the day, which gave a very grey colour to the water, almost giving the impression that the picture was taken in black and white. These dull colours also made the orange of the beak of the birds stand out. I set a large aperture as I wanted to make the first swan stand out and use the second as a sort of mirror effect.
