Evening light - second visit to Constitution Gardens Pond, DC

November 04, 2015

Having found the morning light angle (see earlier post) to be less than ideal, I was optimistic about evening light. I was not disappointed. A number of the target ducks were where I'd hoped they'd be!! Getting into the water with the reflected autumn foliage (note in the image below my shadow pointing towards the subject). They actually never came into the really red and orange reflections, remaining off to the right - some 5 degrees off sun angle.
