Frosty morning

By JouŠo  
Taken today at 9.40 AM, -24 C...

As you can "see", there are some ducks swimming, so this must be my third birdshot ; )

great capture, lovely shot. it's not just the snow that tells how cold it is, it's the pure white frost on the distant trees, excellent well done.

great feather detail and pose on the ducks Jouko Wink
Excellent composition, hope you weren't too close to the edge of that ice, having said that its probably 6ft thick at those tempratures

Mo: I took some close ups from those ducks today, so Ill upload one day more of those feather details...LOL...

Took some steps on the ice, though its pretty thin, because the stream is so powerful...a bit farer away the ice thickness is about 70 centimetres!
