January 2nd: Brown's Pond

Brown’s Pond is on my way home from work and I was really exhausted and did not want to stop but if I give up the experiment on the second day then I don’t deserve to own my camera. I I sucked it up, pulled over to the side of the road and then walked to a little boat landing on the edge of the pond. Nothing. Then I saw the clear reflections of the trees in the water and got that. That’s when the mergansers swam into view. I shot with my Fuji X-T3 with a 100-400mm lens and a 1.4X teleconverter. I had to crop quite a ways to get the ducks in. Then I went to ShopRite where one person at the deli counter serviced two people ahead of me. All I wanted was half a pound of Boar’s Head muenster cheese for my breakfast eggs but these two ordered half the deli items. It took half an hour to get my pitiful order in. But I made it home in time to slap dinner in the oven and get these two photos set.
