Dusk Ducks

Ducks at DusksI’ve just come back from summer vacation in Extremadura. Due to the sheer heat of the summer, much of our activity there is restricted to the evening and night time. Most days we would go for a walk to a local lagoon to have a drink at the bar there. A few times I took my camera, but there was one evening when the ducks were swimming back and forth and the water seemed to have such a beautiful texture, with complex ripple interactions. I took many photographs.

Sunset Boat in ColindresEste post es bilingí¼e para mis fans locales… Mirad después del inglés.

I’m doing this post in Spanish, too, for my local fans. So bear with me.

On Saturday, when I awoke from my nap, the missus instructed me to make a paté sandwich for my daughter’s afternoon snack, and go down to the town park where she was playing with her Spanish grandfather. I’m still not entirely sure what make me grab my camera on the way out the door, but I think I was expecting to get some cute grandfather-granddaughter playground shots. When I got to the park, they were playing on the swings, but soon there were too many kids at the playground, so we left and went for a walk…and what a beautiful walk it was! The tide was high, the sunset was beautiful and there was the tiniest sliver of a moon. I was so lucky that I’d taken my camera!
