All Is Calm … Swans On The Bay




IMG_3443 Swan1

A Calm and Peaceful Day  Along The Shore Of The Bay




Mr. Cobb is on guard watching over his family. He is not showing off today. All is calm, and all is bright.

It is a Beautiful Day filled with warmth and light.

I love watching these swans and photographing them when I can, as you all know by now.

It is often very challenging to capture what I see due to the bright harsh sunlight as it shines off the water of the Bay.  But it is worth the effort. I forget about the world around me for a time, and all the cares of life. All is calm, and all is bright. It brings a peaceful moment filled with Joy.  I am in “Awe” of what I see as I witness the nature that surrounds me, and the Creator of it all.

I don’t get to travel very often and so I do appreciate the Beauty that surrounds me, even if it is common to some.

Ah! But I do get to travel  through the eyes of each one of you, and other wonderful bloggers, and photographers around the world. We all have something to share, and what is common to one, is new and exciting to another. At least that is how I see it. Thank you for all each one of you share. And now on to the next photo. I never know what I am going to write when I start my update. It truly is “Random Thoughts and Photographs”, and comes from my heart. Oh ya, I guess I better stop jip japping and get on with it. Ha!






A Very Touching Sight To See

As mother swan tends to her swanlings.

Off they go on yet another adventure and to get a bite to eat. I think they were out to have some Bay Vegetable Soup. :)


That is it for now. These photos were taken on May 29th.  I may never get caught up but what’s a gal to do.

Just take it as it comes and share when I can.

  There is a time for everything and life goes on. I hope life is good to you, and full of wonder at the things you see around you.

And I pray for those around the world who due to their political environment and circumstances among other things, do not see the Beauty. There is Hope in Jesus. God help us all to love one another, and some how  make a difference in this world we live in.

To all my blogger friends and those who drop by, may you have a good day filled with Peace, Hope and Love.

Sincerely, with Love and Care

Dianne :)


  1. Thanks for sharing these adorable images. Those little guys and galls are just the sweetest little things. Beauty is everywhere. Have a blessed weekend.

  2. No majestic swans here. Mostly I see Canadian geese and Mallards with an occasional smattering of Sand Hill Cranes and Blue Herons...maybe even a Pheasant or two. I love the photos you've got here Dianne. I share your feeling of escape with such things...though it doesn't seem to last as long for me as it used to. Have a very blessed weekend.

  3. Hi Dianne,

    Great pictures, quite calming to view them.

    Love and care to you across the big pond.


  4. Oh they are perfection. I love seeing them and the entire family. You took those on my oldest's birthday. I will send him here to see what you did on that wonderful day. xoxox

  5. Wonderful photos Dianne. I do love the beautiful birds, we don't have many around here, but I think the wild life authorities are trying to reestablish them here again.

  6. The swans are beautiful. You do such a great job of photographing them.


  7. They are all magical. Oh Dianne I just loved each photo. What a sight this had to be. Im sure you did have to watch awhile. Loved this blog. Fantastic and filled me with the wonder of nature.
    Wishing you a weekend full of love and His Light.
    me from the West .:)

    1. Lisa I have learned one must wait on nature and that I did. I just love sitting or standing and watching them.
      Thankyou Lisa. ox

  8. Thank you all very much for stopping by and leaving your comments. I do appreciate it. Will come by for a visit soon. I had a good but fairly busy day, running errands, shopping, visiting my mom etc.
    Have a wonderful night and day tomorrow. ox Dianne :)

  9. Dianne you have out done yourself again! These family is so beautiful! I have enjoyed each and every photo. I've especially enjoyed your message here to all of us. You are very kind and sweet! Glad you had a good day. I also had a good and busy day. Have a wonderful week!

  10. My heart aches for those who do not know Him. I feel that the Holy Spirit has put it in my heart to pray more earnestly than ever before.

  11. Oh my goodness - those precious babies are so cute! Precious and lovely, too. Hope all is well with you!

  12. Dianne these are just stunning! I absolutely agree about living vicariously through each others photos and these are a great example. I have never seen baby swans and am so happy you have shared them with us.

  13. Dianne, # 4 & # 5 are so incrediably cute! The soft, gentle, cozy little ones. Too have never seen swans with babies before in real life. Where would these babs be without your great photography? I don't know where I would be without you! GREAT GREAT beauty here. Thanks for your sweet note...

  14. Dianne, these are fantastic captures. It inspires me to get my camera & go to lake or river somewhere! (of course in reality I'm stuck at work all day today..) The baby swans are adorable & I'm glad they are well cared for.

    Have a great rest of the week.. : )

  15. Glad I got to travel and see those swans with you today too! Beautiful!

  16. These are just the cutest little babies I've ever seen! I'll keep this up on my computer for hubby to see later! He will love these photos, too! Hugs!

  20. Oh Diane these are some of your most beautiful swan photos. I love the close up of the babies. Also mom with the babies. So beautiful. I too do my traveling through the eyes of others who blog. I am content with that. Yes it does help one look more closer what they can find in their own area. The nature around you is just a beautiful and natural looking as any other part of the world. Your music playing and the thought of the photos just brings me to that place your were during that day. Thank you for sharing. Hugs Carrie
