Duck on a Log

Duck on LogTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

If you discount dull overcast days, wet and rainy days, very hot and humid days and days of frigid cold and snow there is a minority of days left in the year to get out there and photograph nature. Of all these types of foul weather, dull overcast days are the least problematic. In fact the overcast sky can provide great soft light for some things. Here we have nice soft light on everything making our background just a bit washed out (less than optimum water). The duck and log more than make up for that.

  3. Cold and (first) snow here in Western Massachusetts today, but the problematic conditions for taking photographs were mainly my dog running into the river/stream!

    • I was going to say we have been spared the snow but after a sunny morning we got a small storm (p.s.I hate spell check..)
