    Early risers are awarded with great energy and opportunity. I was supposed to sleep like a log after travelling a great distance to this amazing resort in the desert and I decided to wake up early just so I could roam around and explore. I was in for a treat as the desert was covered in fog and the lake closeby had swans and this swan right here followed me wherever I moved. I set up my tripod and put it on timer and ran and posed so I could forever cherish this morning!

    I love Your Shot photographer Anoop Bhaskar's comment: "A very much balanced image, I like the tone of colors from the left to the right when you see them diagonally. It's like opening a box and seeing candies inside :) Love the composition and colour."
