This is a photo blog of self expression. All the images I post are self assignments driven by the need for more creativity in my life. This is my escape from the everyday shooting as a professional photographer.
I was at Dollywood with my family and of course my camera when I saw these wild ducks in a pond next to one of the water rides. I am always looking for interesting subject whereever I am. In fact I like to find things in places that most people do not considered a great location for photography. The evening light helped the colors to pop. I used a 200mm telephoto lens with an f-stop of 2.8 which produced a shallow depth of field . The shutter speed was set at 1/250 to freeze the fast swimming duck. The lush green vegetation turned the pond into a colorful background for the duck.
