Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second Story – Take 2

Shane Francescut writes: For this week’s challenge, we want you to become a documentary photographer and attempt to capture a candid moment of a person, place, or thing. Put your National Geographic hat on and tell a story by documenting a moment in time through a single image. What do you think this story is?

The “rest of the story” is that these three swans had just been released by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources as they try to restore trumpeter swan populations to Iowa. The Trumpeter Swan Restoration project released these three swans last May at Summit Lake near Creston, IA, and four more this year.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Barbara. It was such a fun event to photograph. The DNR gave a 30 minute educational presentation for school children (and adults) and then the released the swans. They were anxious to get in the water!

      I appreciate your desire to follow the link. I have found that these challenges are a great way to expand one’s knowledge on such a wide range of topics, so I appreciate the links that some provide.

      Look forward to seeing more of your entries!
