I was out walking in the woods today – the weather was sunny and beautiful, but with a distinctly Fall chill in the air. I took along a long lens and the main idea was to come back with a few nature shots.

I always try to get something beautiful when I am out in nature. That is the main aesthetic search at the root of my photography – looking for the beauty around us and recording it. Therefore I was delighted to come across some mallard ducks floating around in a wetland pond, tantalizingly swimming in and out of shadows and into the sun. I jumped at the opportunity to wait for that magnificent flash of green that male mallards have when sun hits their heads at the right angle.
