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.

The white swans forming a heart with their elegant necks and the compelling black water make this picture very beautiful to look at.

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.
