Morning walk in Pildammsparken, May 21

Last morning I took an early morning walk in the park (Pildammsparken, Malmö, Sweden). As usual I almost bailed since I am 99 % night owl and 1 % early bird, but I am SO glad I went there! Such a beautiful morning. Not even the ducks were awake.

Alley in the parkThe water was pretty and the wind almost non existing which gave some decent reflections.

Not even the ducks were awake!

Lovely trees that reflects in the lake.

But … the most lovely thing of all! The thing that really made it worth the effort x 1000 was when I saw this swan couple sleeping on the other side of the pond. They are under the tree in the middle. One still sleeping and the other just getting ready (just before this shot I also accidently pushed a button on my camera so the settings got all wrong. Gah! Think this is pretty ok anyway though).

Mr and Mrs SwanI have always loved swans and have seen a lot of them, but I have never seen a couple looking so much in love as these two. It truly was an amazing experience that I will remember for a long time. And as you might have figured out by now …. I did not regret for one moment waking up at 5 am.
