Picture of the week: swanning around in Cherington


Photographer Verity Rivers captured this stunning image of her swimming partner at one with nature.

Verity regularly takes a dip with friends at Cherington Lake but made a quick dash to her iPhone when the swans appeared near her friend Yuliya Andrews.

Verity said: “I often swim here with girlfriends, as cold water has a medicinal calming effect on my mind. The swans often come up to us, so I stood waiting for them to swim beside her and framed the image so that it captured her reflection in the water. It’s a simple iPhone snap with a little tweaking in photoshop.”

Yuliya, a holistic and transformational coach felt enriched by the encounter, she added: “A pure state of consciousness is an ability to see through the ripples in the water, to see the stillness  and tranquillity beneath all the noise and all the distortion.”
