mallard duck standing on rock in water

Colorful in Winter

Colors, colors, colors in the dark days of winter. Everything reflects on the rippling water, especially the bright blue sky from one angle and the brightly-lit hillside of auburn tree trunks and oak leaves. Love the orange foot on the duck, who’s giving one web foot a break.

I spent a good bit of time watching the ducks and geese on Chartiers Creek, feeling lucky that I have such a place to go and spend some quiet, meditative and creative time.

  1. Paul, I remembered your love of ducks. There was more going on here with color and shape than I could take in through one photograph.
