A Harmonious Symphony

This photograph is imbued with a sense of mysticism. The tree’s shadow travels from the top right to the bottom left corner in an “S” shape, similar to the Yin and Yang image symbolizing harmony. An adult swan and several babies are coincidentally located on the edge of the “S,” while the swan on the right is swimming toward the farthest edge of the picture. Both swans have reached a boundary. Knowingly or unknowingly, the photographer has thus implied a mystical sense of inner connection. At the same time, the concern, trust, and bliss between them is illustrated by a vast stretch of mirror-smooth lake water in the center of the picture.
