A duck on a pier at Lac Léman: Ready to set sail

No anecdote this time. Just an image I happen to like. Why? A well-timed click I think and as a result a story. A story about a duck that is going places. Where? No clue? Why? You tell me. With whom? I saw paparazzi nearby, so we’ll probably read about it soon. When? That one I know … now! Did she or he have a plan? I am pretty sure! Someone with enough imagination (or drugs) could write a whole book about the adventures of this duck. 🙂

A duck on a pier at Lac Léman: Ready to set sail

A lake landscape captured at the shores of Lac Léman, featuring a duck on a pier that is just about to set sail.

I captured this lake landscape with a duck at the shores of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) near Montreux, in the Swiss Canton of Vaud.

Cheers, Johan 🙂

    @Doug: I agree … plus that one foot …
    @Richard: Tnx my friend. Do you see parallels between you and the duck?
    @Amelia: … I seem to recall that there was this song in the 70’s “I want to fly like a … duck”

    I’ve never parachuted, but my best dreams are of soaring like an eagle. A duck will do as well. & That scenic view s/he’s flying into, I’d stay airborne for . . .

    The low camera angle made this photo, otherwise, it’s just a photo of a duck. There’s a great story here, all that remains as you say, is someone to tell it. I’ll just enjoy the image as it is. 🙂

    @JP Noyes: exactly. Otherwise I would probably have binned it …
    @Sumit: I think Daffy just enjoyed a delicious Swiss cheese fondue!

    That is one fat duck Johan. I don’t think he can stand for too long – floating is much less stressful for him:-)
