Downy Duckling ©2012 HAB Photography

Let me begin by apologizing for not blogging for quite a while, I am on vacation in New England and tonight is the first time I have access to wifi. Anyways, the other night we were walking along the wharfs in Newport, Rhode Island and I saw a duck with two ducklings trailing behind it. I walked over and snapped a few pictures of the duckling because baby animals are one of my favorite things in the world.

There are several aspects of this photograph that turned out to be very aesthetically pleasing. The action of the duckling’s foot is visible and because I used the flash, certain details such as water droplets are visible in the duckling’s feathery down. The water also adds an interesting aspect to the picture. The ripples from the duckling’s movement, combined with the reflection of the duckling in the dark and solid nature of the water, adds a deeper dimension to the photograph.
