Great Crested Grebe series
Great Crested Grebe (wikipedia ) on the city canals in Weesp, the Netherlands – carrying it’s young on it’s back…
It was a very clear day, and the reflections on the water of the flowered canal walls and houses was enormous… and I didn’t have a strong telelens back then… Still, I just couldn’t stop trying and shooting along… Looks like a painting, isn’t it!
Photo made with Pentax K10d camera and Pentax-M zoom1:2.8-4 40-80mm lens – strongly cropped and edited in Photoshop to diminish the reflection.
