Published again!

Our local newspaper has accepted a second pic that I submitted to them. Not one for the news desk this time but a wildlife one taken on the Grand Union Canal, when I was on the towpath en route to the local supermarket.

Barrie and I have watched the pen on her nest for about 6 weeks while the cob has been swanning () around enjoying himself! They produced five cygnets and the family are, at the moment, remaining close to home. We have quite often seen young cygnets riding on their mother's back but with five to transport, the boarding procedure was somewhat time consuming!

As the purpose of my walk was the purchase of some groceries, I was not carrying my E-M1, but a non Olympus 'pocket' camera.



Regards,
Ann1e

Good reportage, regardless of the manner in which it was captured.

As Graham says, good reportage and a well written text to go with it, Anne.

Re: Published again!

Thanks all - it's a bit of fun. One of the consequences of the internet is the fact that fewer people buy hard copies of newspapers nowadays - particularly the local press which is top heavy (local to us at any rate) with advertising. Consequently, I don't think any of my friends even noticed either of my recent published efforts! :-(

Regards,
Ann1e

Well done. If your local paper has a Facebook or Twitter presence, you may find the photo has been given more exposure there.
