Lack of clear skies and interesting weather has been very frustrating lately so having an 'itchy shutter finger' I ended up at a large man made lake in Kilrea beside the Mannor House Hotel. Lots of nice Swans and Ducks around. My dog kept swimming after the Swans to which the Swans reacted by racing across the water hissing loudly!. A few snaps...

Nice work Martin - love the "take-off" shot - just the right amount of motion blur!
