Snow Shovelers

by Morris Bennett Altman

These Northern Shoveler were walking across ice covered Oakland Lake here in New York City. Snow fell from the sky hiding the ice and turning my black lens white.
Equipment: Nikon D300s + Sigma 150-600 Sport @ 240mm, ISO 800, 1/160, f8, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer)

The son of an artist, I have been taking photos since age 7. I’m a New York City based wildlife and nature photographer. Exploring nature is a great way to relax and a fine contrast to the concrete jungle I call home.

I love how you got it when they were in a perfect line! It’s so cute!:]

Its a great photo on its own, but the story behind the photo adds so much. I love that the great city (NYC) and all its entrapments are veiled by the snow so that only the shovelers are in present in the photo.

They are such pretty ducks. Love your shot, Morris. They stand out so nicely against the all-white setting. Your title definitely brought a smile. :)

Who says photographers can’t get their ducks in a row!
