The setting sun provided the perfect backlighting for these swans on a local lake. It turned the water to gold and the swans to silhouettes. I thought it a good entry for the current contest. This was my best shot during the recent deer hunting season.

I wish I was a Glow Worm, a Glow Worm's never glum, 'cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?

The golden light ad the swans in silhouette make this a unique and beautiful shot Tick.

Nice play on the movie title, Tick... "Come on, Norman, let's go say goodbye to the swans... HOOOOONNKKK!" Seriously, though, what a great example of reflected light, the water disturbed by the swans reflecting the sky above, while silhouetted by color from the opposite bank. That orange must come from a mass of gold and red fall leaves. I'd say good luck in the contest but you really don't need it... a placer, for sure. S&F.

As you know I LOVE Silo's as they leave a lot to the imagination but at the same time focus more on the actual
topic of the image...Excellent Post.
