A Pair of common Mallards enjoying the first rays of the Sun on the River Danube.

This was the first sign of wildlife that I could come across after a week of snow and cold wave conditions in Europe.

The slanting sun, clear sky and the river flow creates vastly different colour tones and highlights than what we see in similar situation back home in India.
