Cave Dwelling Mallards

Cave Dwelling Mallards

(Gary Minish) #1

Mallard ducks in front of a rock overhang at the edge of the Valdez Bay at Valdez, Alaska. The size of the overhanging rocks with the icicles hanging from them made it look like the ducks were in a cave.

Gary, it seems that in Alaska, even the rocks have teeth. :wink: The strong contrast make this a dramatic view. The ducks are spread well across the frame and having a bit of action on the right is a neat extra. I also love the strong reflections and foam.
