Irondequoit Bay (& angry birds)

This is Irondequoit Bay in Monroe County, NY.  The center of the bay acts as the eastern border for the town of Irondequoit and the western border of the towns of Penfield and  Webster (Where Life is Worth Living).  This photo shows the Bay from the Penfield side.  Noteworthy is that this year marks the 12,000th birthday of the Bay (plus or minus 1000 years).

The Bay is home to non-migrating swans and fishermen (although some fishermen may, at times, migrate).

      Thanks, John. The swans were shot (oops, I mean photographed – you can’t shoot a swan in Monroe County) on the swing bridge looking down at the water. There were at least a dozen or so swans and I guess they don’t mind the cold.
      As for the cake, I’ll let you know as soon as I find out. Stay tuned!

      Thanks, Toad. I should have posted the color version of this as it looked very nice, too. It’s always a special day around here when the sky is blue.

    I like that black and white shot too, including the toning which is nicely subtle. There is something that suggests it could be a colour shot of a monotone setting. I like the oily water surface in the bottom picture too.

      Thanks, ehpem. There are times when the water in this outlet looks a little too brown for my taste so I de-saturated the color a bit and pushed the blue slider to balance it out. It’s just more interesting visually.
