Winter Expressions



Chicago, 2023

Growing up around Mallard ducks, I never really appreciated just how beautiful the male Mallard duck display plumage is. During a soft winter snowfall, I was testing a new camera lens in Humboldt Park, Chicago. As the duck came up toward me, I was amazed by the detail this lens was picking up, but I was also amazed at the color of its head. What I love about his image is it reminds me to slow down and look around. Sometimes some of the most beautiful things in life are right in front of us. Limited edition print of 6.
