Some days you just get lucky…

I had noticed last week that there seemed to be an extraordinary number of swans on the Grand Canal near Portobello Bridge (a sure harbinger of spring, no?). Earlier this week, I decided to leave work a bit earlier than usual and take a little detour up along the Grand Canal on the way home – and really lucked out with my timing, being treated to some spectacular views of clouds turned all different shades of pink with the setting sun. The swans, of course, were stunning against this backdrop, and I had the camera out a good bit (appearance of being a tourist be damned). A lovely Asian fellow had come along to where the swans were as well with a proper camera and kit, and quite kindly waited for me to take my few snaps, which I thought was generous of him. A couple of favourites:
