Misty winter ducks


Last Autumn I visited local McLaren Falls Park around 7.30am to try and photograph some Autumn colours.


In Cherry Bay I parked my car and walked down to the lake through the icy cold shadows breathing icy cold air and stopped at the edge of the water where alot of ducks were, some were resting and others were starting to come to life as the sun started to warm where I was standing.



I think what impressed me the most was the fog that was slowly rising from the water into the air. Due to living up north for 20 years I'd never seen this before as over winter for us it was mostly rainy and damp. Hopefully next Autumn I'll be back there again.

  1. I remember your post about McLaren Falls. One of the places I visited, and so enjoyed, on my last visit to New Zealand (which was also the start of autumn). That is a beautiful reminder. Thank you.

  11. I have a typical Northlander's admiration for foggy photos. You're right, they are not so easy to get up here, unless you are luck enough like me to live near the mountains. I love that mystical first photo and the crispy sharp second shot.
