STOPS ALONG THE WAY

MALLARD STARS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

These photographs were taken in mid-October when the autumn leaves had reached their peak. The reflection in the water was spectacular. The lake was teeming with ducks, all I had to do was wait for some to swim through the water with the most pleasing reflections and these two did. The photos only needed modest post processing adjustments, mainly to compensate for exposure and brightness issues.

  1. Your first picture is a quacker … err …. cracker! 😀 Seriously though, the space filled with colour makes for a lovely shot that works beautifully with the drake’s plumage.

  2. I especially adore that first one because of the (ahem) negative space. 😉

  3. These common ducks just get no respect. Maybe you’ll change that with these gorgeous pictures.
