Mallard Duck, Blue Waters

I named this photo "Mallard Duck, Blue Waters," for obvious reasons. Photographed in Papago Park, Phoenix, AZ, the setting is a fishing lagoon in afternoon winter light. The low angle o the sun gives the fishing lagoon this deep blue color only during the winter season. It provides a beautiful contrast to the warm colors in the duck's plumage. As a web designer, so much of my inspiration comes from these moments spent in Nature! -Don Peterson
