This dam is located close to my home. I have recently started doing some photoshoots there. It is a lovely location and its popular with cyclists, joggers and walkers, alike.
I have found a very good spot, at the bridge, which is perfect for sunrises, and the convenience of positioning my tripod and camera on a stone wall,which forms part of the bridge, is great. The other bonus is that I take my cushion with me, so I’m comfortable during my shoot.
The ducks are immediately attracted to humans as they expect to be fed. I approach the bridge quietly, stealth-like, so as to eliminate drawing the ducks attention and attraction to me, as they create ripples, which distort the reflections. I like seeing the ducks at other times, when I’m not on photoshoots.
Thank you for appreciating my work!
