Location: Bogura, Bangladesh

Location: Enkhuizen, the Netherlands
Artist's comment: "It takes nothing to join the crowd, but it takes everything to stand alone: this picture totally represents this quote! Swans usually go in pairs, but not in this case.

They have something graceful and mysterious."
