Golden feathers

Sometimes –

When the light is right

And lies in golden ribbons on the water,

The ordinary (even if just the legs of a duck)

Becomes extraordinary.

  13. The golden tones of this photo are beautiful. The unusual framing, the stillness of the duck contrasted with the rippling water and, yes, that brilliantly hued leg all contribute to a stunning photograph.

  38. Makes me wonder if you have an awesome zoom on your camera or if even the ducks know you belong out there in nature and let you get pretty close!

    June 17, 2012 at 10:33

    • I have a pretty good zoom, but not really an awesome one. This duck let me get nice and close.
