20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Calm During The Storm

A week before capturing this shot I got to this spot and thought to myself that this frame would be great if there’d be snow and some ducks swimming by. The very next week we had a snow storm and I took my chances to get to the spot early and waited for a couple hours before this pair of Mallards showed up on the calm river.
