Swan Lake

"Swan Lake Nature Study Area" - formerly known as the "Lemon Valley Marsh". What a difference a name makes. I stumbled upon this "nearly unspoiled wetland in the midst of suburban housing and warehouses", one quiet Sunday morning. Looking at this photo calms me.

This is my third home-developed roll.

    Great album! I really want that camera and it's all your fault! I thought I was through with purchasing more cameras, but these pics make me envy you for that gem ;-))

    @moodification - oh Peer! This was my first time using a neutral density filter too! To help me with the bright Nevada light. So sell half of your cameras and buy an xpan! Join @primula and myself and @clickiemcpete. I told myself this was my dream camera - the only one I would ever need. And this is turning out to be true. I didn't realize how attached to the xpan I had become until recently - I had a couple scares, and thought perhaps I'd broken the camera. I panicked because I could not imagine my creative life without it. But thankfully, all is well.
