A little area on Lake Ontario where the water never freezes and is slightly sheltered from the winds, so many beautiful wintering ducks (Redheads, Mergansers Buffleheads, Long-tailed), Ring-billed Gulls and Canada Geese. When I took this photo I was surrounded by the gulls and geese, both at my feet and in the air. They weren’t the only ones in paradise…!

    I have two monitors (desktop). This image looks sharp on one and not-so-much on the other one.

    Not fun.

    Paradise indeed, and how wonderful to have that special sheltered area within sight of the city skyline! You are brave to be out in such cold weather. :) Very serene image, Katherine.

    So beautiful Kat! And I am just amazed that it doesn’t freeze over….. no wonder it is paradise for them, and for you!! My favorite thing about this image is the hint of the city in the background, making the city and ‘civilization’ secondary to the beauty of the natural scene before us…. wonderful attention to composition!!
