Autumn in Queen’s Park

Posted by Jackie on November 18, 2008

I haven’t shown a picture from Queen’s Park for ages. This is the big lake (taken from Pollokshaws Road).

I was all set to include the swan swimming majestically by, when it dunked its head just at the wrong moment, so you have a slightly less than majestic white blob (to the left). The darker blobs on the lake are seagulls.

    Swans are naughty like that…just ask me!

    A lovely capture, here. The empty bench, the gloomy sky, the scattered leaves….it kind of leaves a “hollow” feeling. Almost as though the lonely bench is beckoning someone…anyone…to just come have a sit, even if only for a short while….

    Beautifully photographed Jackie! I really like the mood created by the lone bench and the framing.

    A headless swan, spooky! Great photo.

  5. Do you think swans have ESP??

    A very evocative photograph of the days ‘closing in’.

    Never mind about the swan! It means it’s not too ‘posed’ a photo.

    Kris: it was a Monday morning, and also freezing, so I’d say most people were either at work or indoors somewhere warmer. The lake is much busier in summer, and also later afternoon and weekends.

    Seems more green there then here in New York. We have a lot of leaves already turned here.

    Isn’t that the way it goes? And no one’s at this park! That surprises me. Maybe everywhere else was busy, but you caught the one spot where it was quiet. I would love to walk in a park like this every day. It’s beautiful. Especially this time of year.
