Drake Mallard in Golden Water

    Newer Older

    This shot is not as low as I would like it as seen in the previous shot, but I decided to post it because I like the color of the water in this shot and it was that few seconds when the sun was out. Due to a lack of rain the water level at this park really dropped making the paved ledge a foot higher then the water. I thankfully found a spot below the ledge at the waters edge because for me I think this is too high. :)

      I'm fairly certain that no other photographer that I follow shoots as perfect and as "warm" light as you do. VERY nice style signature...

      I take shots of Mallards because they are beautiful birds, but when I look at them later, they never do the bird justice. In this little series you have done them full justice. Way to go.
