Duck Pond


This photograph was made one morning at the end of winter. The ice was melting on Beaver Lake, a pond in Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada. The camera was pointed into the sun as a fog formed over the water. Later in the afternoon all of the ice was gone, the ducks in the picture's background had unwittingly broken it up allowing the smaller pieces to float into the sunlight and melt.

A 35-135mm zoom lens was used around the 70mm mark. The aperture and shutter speed was not recorded. Kodachrome slide film was used, we scan it with a resolution slightly over 10,000 samples per square millimetre.
