Dear colleagues, today, I shall give and the last picture of these wild ducks.

Once were ready to fly ... flew off after a few minutes they returned.

Perhaps attracted and sunlight which can be seen on the ice.

Well, I really loved this picture and I thought of a mile away and you.

I hope you enjoy and expect your criticisms and comments, every day forward.

I wish all a nice and easy week,

Buna Adrian,
Daca la noi e frig acum, vad ca pe la tine e frig de ceva vreme ... ma tot gandesc ca e bine ca n-au taiat rusii gazul iar ca inghetam si noi ca ratele de pe lac :)
Imi place la tine ca surprinzi subiectii in cadre mai largi astfel incat cei care privesc imaginile isi pot face o idee despre mediul natural al acestor vietuitoare.
Sa auzim de bine,

Hi Adrian

Lovely composition - the light is magnificent and the elements - ice, ducks & reeds create a wonderful and moody scene.

Well seen and captured.

Hello Adrian,
Fantastic image of this flock of Mallard ducks resting on the frozen pond. The golden light reflecting on the ice is a real bonus. Thanks for sharing.

Buna Adrina,
Inca un peisaj frumos cu rate cu culori frumoase, detalii demne de o pictura medievala, felicitari!

Great shot, Adrian. Thank you for sharing. Interesting choice for the color of your signature... did you try to match the center duck's color? Not a big deal, but I often wonder what color I should use for my signature... and usually go with black. The burnt orange you used caught my eye.

Ciao Adrian, great capture of a lot of wild ducks, fascinating composition with splendid light, very well done, ciao Silvio

Ciao Adrian. Great atmosphere from the golden perfectly focused reflections. Very good POV.

Uitandu-ma afara la termometru si vazand ca e -16, imi vine cateodata sa regret ca tata nu era din...Togo!
Da vine ea vara si atat eu cat si ratustele tale ne vom balacii din nou!

Hello Adrian.
nice picture of the mallards it could be taken here.
Well done wiht the composition and nice colours.
Best regards Siggi

Ciao Adrian,
una splendida cattura di Germani in una fantastica atmosfera invernale dai colori dorati, non certo piacevole per gli Anatidi che non amano il ghiaccio (non sanno pattinare!?), mi piace molto il grande spazio con in mezzo gli uccelli e lo sfondo con le canne, ottima definizione.
GRazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Buna Adrian.
Tare cred ca ar vrea sa sparga gheata ratele astea si sa prinda ceva pesti.Dar trebuie sa astepte primavara.
Multe salutari.Alin.

Salut Adrian
Stii ce imi place cel mai mult la imaginea asta,? Lumina calda a soarelui care se reflecta pe gheata, la fel ca si culoarea stufarisului din fundal. Poate ratustele nu sunt punctul principal, insa toata imaginea e oarecum plina de caldura, in ciuda faptului ca erau probabil sub zero afara.
Numai bine,

Hello Adrian,
Beautiful image, I love the golden reflection on the icy water very much, I'm happy I'm not those ducks with my feet in the freezing water. There was fun story told in the movie "Fried Green Tomato" There was a beautiful lake somewhere with many ducks, one day, the temporature drop so fast the lake was frozen. The ducks flew away and took the lake with them, it landed in the State of Georgia somewhere."
Beautiful shot. I enjoyed it.

Hi Adrian,

Great winter scene capture from very nice vantage point with excellent DOF, great clarity and delightful composition. Poor wild ducks also enhance the view in positivew way!
TFS and have a nice night and WE!


Mmmm....imi place mult compozitia si momentul ales al zilei, bravo

Hi Adrian.

I like wide shot like this depicting the natural setting. The reflection of sunlight on ice is just stunning. Those wild ducks are so sharp with fine details.

Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Beautiful presentation of natural scene by great patterns and colours,details well done ADRIAN RUSU.
