Swan Lake and Blue Moon

Swans on Irondequoit Bay at night in August.

This was such a gorgeous, balmy evening with a blue moon, white swans, and music playing from one of the local bars across the street from the bay area. Who needs to go on vacation with this kind of scenery a short drive from home! 

I'm getting to be like Randy, whose Daily Photo Project blog is featured to the right under "My Favorite Blogs". He takes his camera everywhere; I now take my camera everywhere.

There've been several instances when I wished I had my camera with me because I've missed a lot of great photo opportunities, which really infuriated me. My camera is now part of my ensemble. Thanks for the inspiration, Randy, and keeping my blood pressure under control.

Hope all of you enjoy the pics of beautiful upstate New York. This is a great time of year to be here.

Very cool photo Pam, especially zoomed in to the large size where you can see the swans glowing white eyes against the inky black night. Isn’t it great to have your camera with you when life presents you with a moment worth saving? I'm looking forward to seeing more of New York through your lens :)

Thanks, Randy. This photo stuff is fun.

The swans seemed to glow in the dark along with their eyes. There are some decent shots of beautiful Irondequoit Bay if you scroll further down the page.
