Hmmm... it is a bit too cold for November!
The water is hard!
It is slippery!
I am so lonely!
Where is the North? - no! the South!?

Great shot Shir! Love the vivid colours and shiny, reflecty ices made the photo impressive!
Superb post!

Hi Shir, where were you standing to take de pic? Used a Tele?
Wonderful composition, with all that cold and blue ice, the bird is exactly where it must be, adding the warm touch with its incredibles colors.

Hi Shir,
A good one dude!Again another "duck" image a little bit out of the ordinary.I like the pattern of the plates of ice, looks like it is stepping on broken glass.The detail and sharpness is very good as is the position of the duck to show its path.Wel done.
Regards, David

Estupenda imagen. Bastante tierna, con ese patito solo.
Bellos colores y agradable composición Shir. Muchos saludos, JL.

Excelente imagen Shir, realmente.
Una gran captura llena de colores, gracias a un perfecto uso de la luz disponible con hermoso POV que brinda la visión no sólo del ave sino también su reflexión.
Me encanta el encuadre elegido y la presentación general (incluyendo el marco).
Muy buen trabajo.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

Excellent image Shir, indeed.
A great capture with full colors, due to a perfect use of the available light with beautiful POV that not only offers the vision of the bird but also their reflection.
I love the elected framing and the general presentation (including the frame).
Very good job.
Thanks and regards... Ricardo

Hello Shir

A wonderful capture of this moment.The first thing that strikes me about this image is the jig saw puzzle ice.Very beautiful.The duck wading through the ice is illuminated in a warm light,that really helps bring out her colours.Nicely composed and framed.TFS


Hi Shir

THius is an interesting shot! I like your compositipon with the duck off set to the back of the shot. The ice makes for a great patchwork with good textures and shapes. Nice work. TFS.

Magnifique photo à l'aspect graphique indéniable.
Bonne journée.

Hi Shir,

Belle composition,la situation du canard et la composition sont extras.


Que foto mas original y bonita.
La textura del hielo fragmentado y mojado es espectacular, contrastando con los colores cálidos de pato que por cierto esta perfectamente situado en la composición.
Felicidades por esta captura única.

Hiya Shir, what a great shot, wonderful vivid colours, really like the shapes and detail of the ice and its reflection, the duck sure looks confused, lol, superb composition, very nice capture!
