This is one of my favorite images. It was taken on the Burlington waterfront on an early spring day that didn't seem like it would in result in much. You have to look closely to figure out what is going on but it is simply a duck, standing on a piece of wood that was floating just off shore. The sun was still high in the sky and very bright and I wanted the sparkle to look like stars so I closed the aperture all the way down. What I really like about this is that it is something you would never see with the naked eye - it can only be seen through the lens of a camera. Burlington, Vermont. March, 2008.
