Two For Life by gilad Two For Life by gilad
Swans usually mate for life, so it's no wonder they always look so peacful and beautiful.


This is one of these pictures that makes me so happy I'm a photographer.

The two swans were very close to one another, swimming in the water, so I had little time to set and plan the shot.
I simply waited for the right second they got close enough and started snapping like crazy with my Sigma 70-200 F2.8 + Tele convertor*2.

I was very pleased with the resault.
I'm starting to build a collection of natural heart shape moment.

I dedicate this piece to Iris, my wife. The one that I share with my life, for life.

Exquisite picture. I love the contrast between the dark water and the two swans. Swans are truly elegant birds and you've caught a magnificent moment between them with their necks forming a heart.
I'm very impressed.

Theres a lot of these type of heart shaped pics on the net and most of them are pretty plain, But then there are others like This one which is the reason the others look so plain !!

Great Work !!

I love the feeling on this photo!
It is not just a happy affection between the swans, these dark blues makes the emotion more towards some fear of loosing each other and need for protection from a left swan. Their position is great and the heart they are forming accents the human romantic love. Reflection adds even more to the complexity of feelings in this one. Well, simply adorable!
