Get Your Ducks in a Row

Hello everyone! It's the day before the Thanksgiving Holiday here in the U S and I wish each of you the very best of times, not only for the Holiday season, but for the rest of time. I've personally been looking forward to this time, especially since I have some time off during the coming 10 or so days. That provides an opportunity to get some ducks in a row. ;-)

Today's post is in fact a short one and we'll get right into it.

These little darlings were nearby the location where I shot these reflective moments. I was happy to see this nice family outing.

Reflective Moments

Welcome everyone! I hope you've enjoyed a great weekend. Here in the U S the Thanksgiving Holiday is upon us, a time to spend with family and friends and to create and share memories. But most importantly, a time to be thankful.

Today's images were taken at a riverside canal. As I was composing the shot below I heard some rustling above in a nearby tree. A missed opportunity had just flown off, as a very large and beautiful crane took flight. Too bad I hadn't scanned the trees more carefully as I walked the wooded area. In any case, it was back to my initial focus. :-)

As you can see, few if any leaves remain on the trees in this area now.

In addition to the color version I offer this Hazelnut treated version below.

Next we have the same vantage point, zoomed in to 70mm and focused on the tree stump.
