Surfing Duck on Hollingworth Lake.
It isn’t very often that you see a Duck surfing on Hollingworth Lake in Rochdale, possibly due to the amount of sailing boats out on most weekends. There’s pollution to be considered as well so most ducks visiting the lake would only spend enough time for feeding and trying to chat the odd female up for a date.
Ok it’s a silly observation because most of us know that ducks don’t surf, not all the time anyway. So here’s a shot I got whilst the Polar Bear was having a Kit-Kat break and the Duck wanted to grab some of the limelight. He’s surfing on the outfall from the lake and I managed to grab the shot whilst the Duck was heading straight to my dinner plate.
This photo manipulation wasn’t meant to be perfect, I simply thought it would be a bit of fun to start off the weekend. If it brought a smile to your face then you are in the perfect mood that should last you to the local pub tonight.
