Yes it’s a lovely shot, and this is a lovely walking meditation.

I went walking in Morningside Park two days ago, after the snow fell. There wasn’t enough of it to give total cover, and the variegation of it on the grass and the rock-face at the edge of the park made me think of pied-beauty.

I’ve got some twentieth-century solo clarinet music for you, if you want an oblique reminder of the swans.
