El honor de estar esta noche a tu lado es para mí Adrian jeje. Me han gustado tus palabras y esta noche las necesito más que en otras ocasiones.
Interesante tu toma, que aparte de las aves nos deja ver el gélido clima de tu zona... aquí aún no hemos llegado a esos extremos.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Fruoasa fotografie, felicitari! Ca o pictura..

Wonderful shot Adrian. As a thumbnail I thought this picture would be below average but as a blownup image it proves to be well layed out with a rich colour red to the theme. I also like the lighting on the water as it appears to be white like the snow and contrasts well with the red in the rest of the picture. Well done. TFS Trevor

Hi Adrian..
Beautiful picture with quality...Composition nice and well presented...Colors look natural...Tfs.

Ciao Adrian,
splendida cattura di questo gruppo di Anas platyrhyncos in un ambiente con il ghiaccio che crea una certa difficoltà agli anatidi, ma sempre molto bello da fotografare, una piacevole prospettiva e composizione.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona giornata
Ciao Maurizio

Hi Adrian,
Beautiful composition with the birds on the icy lake / river, in difficult light conditions, and a nice tribute to Oana. Congrats and tfs.
Best regards, László

Salut Adrian
Ooooo, multumesc foarte foarte frumos! Sa stii ca imi plac foarte mult ratele salbatice. Inca nu am reusit sa am fotografii decente cu ele, bune de postat, dar poate anul asta cine stie.
Prin Belgia au cam fugit, ca au inghetat apele, insa am vazut foarte mult in Romania, pe Trotus, raul care trece prin orasul natal.
Ce gasesc ciudat la rate, si vad si in fotografia ta, sunt destul de multi masculi adunati la un loc, si doar 2 femele. Probabil, asa fac iarna...
Toate cele bune

Ciao Adrian. Intrigant perspctive here with stunning detaisl and exciting colours. Great work with the light.


Salut Adrian.
Sunt foarte simpatice ratele astea patinatoare.
O poza placuta,desi este despre iarna(care nu prea-mi place).
O zi buna.Alin.

Hallo Adrian!

Eine bunte Entenschar für ana, ein originelles Geschenk! Das Bild strahlt eine friedliche Atmosphäre aus und überrascht durch die Rottöne. Ist das bedingt durch die Lichtverhältnisse?

Liebe Grüsse

Ratustele pe gheata!

Hi Adrian,
Great capture of this happy family of ducks freezing their backs off.The surrounding vegetation also seems all dry and frozen.Nice frame and perspective.

Hello Adrien,

Wouah!!! spectaculaire capture, me plait beaucoup.

Pas facile d'interpréter la "Danse du Cygne" :lol: sur cet endroit gelé.
Belle perspective, malgré l'atmosphère frileuse, les couleurs sont chaleureuses.


A really wonderful capture Adrian. Exposure is fine as is the detail and composition. Photo was taken as the right moment.

Hello Adrian,
Nice capture of a gathering of Mallard ducks at the edge of the ice taken from a nice POV and well composed with the ice sheet and the reed BG.
Thanks and best regards,

Interesting and different picture. I specifically liked the different-colored duck matching the things on the right. Congratulations, it reminds me of the Ugly Duckling!

hello Adrian,
very beautiful scene from frozen Austria, nice photo!
keep photographing! TFS

Hi MF Adrian,

A wonderful winter scene full with pretty ducks. The colours and your POV here are great as well as delightful composition.
TFS and have a great WE and night MF!

Hello Adrian,
A lovely composition in fantastic colours. I like the little crowd of ducks looking a bit lost at the edge of the ice. Well done!
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla

Very nice picture. However, for me, it would be better with the foreground rock cropped out. That way my eyes go directly to the ducks. The red grass on the right and branches on the left are very effective in framing the picture. The colors both of the ducks and their surroundings add a great deal to the picture.

Priwet, Adrian,
Excellent shot! I like the waterstructure. You are lucky photohunter. Wonderful composition! TFS!
Greetings from cold Ural (-27 grad. C at now)

great capture, TFS Ori

Hello Adrian !
Winter must be so hard for ducks and other animals, Tht's what I always think when I see them swim in icy water. Thes groups of Mallards walking on ice looks fantastic. I love the contrast between cold ice and warm-colored reeds.Bautiful light, nicely composition, charming scenery, and I always like to see the natural environment where an animal has been captured. Very well done !
