Lovely aspect on this image Brattcat, it always amazes me how ducks can swim in such icy cold water and not get frostbite..Hope you have a really good weekend and that all is well!

Sharon Creech said...

Wow! Beauteous, both photo and caption.

Kate said...

Despite the cold and inclement weather, this animals look right at home!

Kate said...

How about "these animals"----?

Delightful color and texture of the surface of the water.

Lowell said...

Very unusual color that does indeed look like pewter. But who would think of "pewter" other than a poetess with great creativity?

My eyes were attracted by the yellow spot, like a piece of sun fallen into the grey mood of winter..

Your caption is perfect for this one

Jack said...

Well done, brattcat. The ducks are crisp, and the roiling water demands to be studied and admired.

It took me some time to get the figure-ground worked out here. At first I thought the ducks were a couple of ornate and perhaps artificial leaves. Quiet scene.

How do you come up with these? I"m so amazed. That is just what it resembles.

Wow, this is so beautiful! The title of the post really tells what it looks like and the ducks add a very charming touch to the image!
God bless you!

They would find the crossing of bridges to be but water off their back.
