Ducks at Dusk

I love to look for photo opportunities close to home. This allows me to easily return at different times of the day and under various weather conditions.

I visited this local pond at sunset and happened upon a family of ducks. I thought the setting sun in the distance would create a nice silhouette effect on the water and its floating inhabitants.

I mounted my Nikon D90 on a tripod with a 18-200mm zoom lens. I was able to capture the light of the setting sun with a 1/160 f8 setting.

I was pleased with the results and did not feel that I needed to do any post editing.

I will return to this spot in the spring to capture more sunsets. If I get any good shots I will be sure to post them.
