I took these shots yesterday at Helston boating lake in perfect low sunshine. I also used a new gadget in a right-angled viewfinder. Nothing new to science I know, but these Mallards offered the best opportunity to use it. The benefits are that you can lower the lens to ground level without breaking your neck.
These shots were in effect taken just a few inches above the water level, ensuring maximum light into the camera. I have deliberatly resized these images very large so if you are lucky enough to be viewing on a 27" Mac screen, then I'm sure you will enjoy these shots!
