Ducks on Green – The Brickpit…

by on May.06, 2013, under Life, Photography

The Brickpit” lies within the Sydney Olympic Park precinct.

A very large pond sits in the middle of the Brickpit area and it is home to all manner of wildlife which doesn’t seem to mind the thick layer of bright green “something” which lies on the surface of the pond.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Up first my favourite shot from the morning

Wading in Green

NIKON D600 + 70.0-200.0 mm f/2.8 @ 170 mm, 1/400 sec at f/4, ISO 1400

Here some local birds are wading across the surface of the pond leaving interesting trails in their wake

I’m not sure what this green stuff is but it has different texture in different areas of the pond and I loved the light and dark swirls, lines and shapes left in the surface
