Artist's Description

ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 2009, I WENT TO MY LOCAL SHOOTING CLUB NEAR DAVIS CALIFORNIA, TO TAKE OUT MY STRESS ON A COUPLE OF STEEL PLATES,,,,,,,,,, THAT I SHOOT 22’S AND 357 BULLETS AT, ON THE 100 YARD LINE. AS SOON AS I PULLED INTO THE CLUBS AREA, I NOTICED THE FOG AROUND THE POND AND AROUND THE 100 YARD LINE AREA PLAYING TRICKS IN THE TREES. BY TRICKS I MEAN, AS THE SUN SHOWN THROUGH THE TREE’S BRANCHES, THE FOG ACTED LIKE A SHEET AND CAUSED SHADOWS TO THROW OFF LIKE RAYS OF LIGHT. WHEN I PARKED MY TRUCK AND GOT OUT MY CAMERA, I TRIED TO SNEEK UP ON THIS RED HOODIE THAT WAS FLOATING AROUND THE POND. WELL, HE MUST HAVE COME ACROSS SOME HUNTERS WITH GUNS BEFORE AND GOT LUCKY, BECAUSE WHEN I APPROACHED HIM TO TAKE HIS PHOTO, THAT “DUCK TOOK TO THE AIR” LIKE HE WAS BEING HUNTED AGAIN. I WASN’T ABLE TO GET WITHIN 50 FEET OF HIM WHEN HE TOOK OFF. BUT, ON THE GOOD SIDE, AS HE LEFT THE WATER, HE ALSO LEFT FOOT PRINTS BEHIND WHICH BROKE UP THE STILL SURFACE OF THE WATER. BETWEEN THE FOG AND THE ORANGE TREE THE SURFACE REFLECTIONS AND THE DUCK, I THOUGHT THIS MADE A DECENT LOOKING PHOTO. I USED MY CANON EOS DIGITAL REBEL 300D AND MY 75-300MM TELEPHOTO MACRO AF LENS WITH A CIRCULAR POLARIZING FILTER TO SHOOT THIS IMAGE.
