If it's not frozen then it's not winter. Not long ago I was chatting with a warden from a nearby nature reserve who told me that when you lift ducks and swans out of near-freezing water they feel remarkably warm just beneath their feathers. Have a good weekend.

I love how you captured the wake of the ducks.

Surely this is a site well worth seeing.

Love the trails behind the ducks and how they fan out.

Monica said...

Kjempestilig, Rune! Kunne ha vært et tresnitt dette, med de store kontrastene i bildet!
Flott komponert!
Ha en fin helg:)

Very cool, Rune. I applaud your creativity!

Birgitta Rudenius said...

Ger en spännande känsla nästan lite surrealistiskt :)

Follygirl said...

I like the patterns and textures in this shot.

paul said...

Superb! Love the ripples.

Valerie said...

Love the ripples. the sharp monochrome oh and the ducks! By the way, my Russian grandmother used to say it wasn't winter if the ground wasn't frozen :)

Läckert b&w foto!

This picture just begs to be done in black and white.

We have had a strange winter as well. It is snowing now, and did yesterday. If it is going to make up for lack of snow earlier, it will be a cold wet February.

Nice one, RuneE.

It does not look like winter!How should they know? like the pattern they make on the water.

Laura said...

I love the ripples in the water!

Ken Mac said...

Slightly spooky!

Prairie Jill said...

Great shot! I love the ripples.

What a good decision to go for black and white. I suppose joining any kind of themed group is going to cause some surprising results--in your case, always a fine result as well.

Before the bottom third of the photo filled in on my screen, I thought for a nanosecond you'd caught two planes in the night sky and somehow abstracted them. That would've been amazing, but I like ducks better than planes.

Dina said...

Their wake is fascinating.

Jarek said...

Interesting compositiuon. Great patterns and textures.

Mandy Southgate said...

Ha ha, it might be winter but those ducks still need to swim!

raf said...

Splendid!
