I am ugly duckling

I am ugly duckling.


I am not as round and smooth,


Neither I am as white.


I try to walk by myself …


… but I cannot.


I am small and grey,


but I was told it will all change one day.


I even don’t know how to fly!


I am ugly duckling:


I can only hope for a better future to come


Picture shot at the shores of lake Hallwil in a sunny day on Aargau, Switzerland. Praise the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VRII and click each picture to magnify it.

      Dear Lilly nice to see you here. I constantly try to develop my polymath side. As music, sculpture, painting and archery somehow failed, I go towards photography and poetry 😉

    Awesome images. Full screen on the monitor is incredible. Would it be fair to say that particular lens contributed substantially to the clarity? Would my wife be convinced? I may need a little help here! 🙂

      I here admit and sign there is no doubt that the sharpness of the pictures of this post is not only due to the steel nerves of the photographer 😉 – but also to the amazing quality of the Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 VR II lenses. This lens is absolutely worth its cost. This is by far the best lens I ever had.
