CHEW LAKE 17 – MIST LIFTING, HERONS GREEN 5

 

 

Mist lifting, Herons Green 5

A pair of Tufted Ducks in Herons Green Bay, as the mist lifts; 6 Apr 2015.

The male (drake) Tufted Duck is on the left; his little tuft or crest can just be seen sticking out from the back of his head if you click onto this image to enlarge it.

I rarely use software presets with images if the presets take everything out of my control and just produce “a look”.  But I like the look of this “look”, if I can put it like that 🙂 , and so here it is.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 200 ISO; +0.7 stops overexposure at capture; Color Efex Pro 4‘s Bleach Bypass preset.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      Oh its just a name, you know, Gary. The thing is, the valley bottom in which this reservoir sits was all farmland prior to around 1950 or so, and so all of the names of the lake’s various features have been made up since then. Grey Herons do of course occur at Herons Green just as they occur all around the lake’s edges, but not to any significantly greater extent.

      I’m glad you like the picture – thank you! Adrian
