Taking advantage of the fair Sunday weather and to shoot with some photography friends, I ventured to the zoo. I had already made up my mind that in spite of my still fragile condition – recovering from a flu – I was still going to take the chance, brave the 46F weather and go shooting. Incidentally, there was a photo contest going on at the zoo. An annual winter contest which brings hordes of photographers from amateur to professional to shoot at the zoo and I was out there rubbing elbows with the best and worst of them.
It made no difference to me whether there was a contest going on or not, I was out for one reason – to make art with light and I think this photograph reflects that. Here I captured a duck in one of the many pools nestled in its own feathers for warmth just slightly off shore of the pond hence the title Nestled for Warmth.
