Don't fret, it's just Charles Ford's photography blog.

Duck Magic

I went out to search for winter scenes at mid-day, and happened upon some ducks on a lake, swimming through brilliant twinkling sun reflections.  My confession about this one is that I decided not to wade through the huge pile of snow necessary to change to a longer lens.  This is quite the extreme crop, I’ll leave it at that.   I believe the little sunburst patterns you see are a result of the small aperture used here…f/16.   No filters were used on camera or in post processing.   Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

    This is really nice,Charles. The reflections are spectacular. I’m always shooting ducks too (with a camera, of course).

  3. Those sun reflections are fantastic! I had to smile over your “confession”. It made me think of all the times I have taken the easier way out.
