Barrow's Goldeneye

July 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Another day, another Duck. Barrow's Goldeneye was a major Iceland target, and after a really long drive to Myvatn from Snaefellsnes of approximately six hours we were pleased to find a small group of them in a sheltered bay. We had previously tried a lone male just over the road on a smaller pool, but with no cover for our approach, he was understandably having none of it. Happily I spotted a group the other side, and there was the usual long grass etc in which to wriggle our way up to the water. This crawling approach was certainly quite dirty, but made the difference on a number of occasions. Once at the water's edge, lenses poked out and away we went, once again nice and low. For once the sun was out, and this of course made it difficult to control highlights and shadows - I've had to do a lot in pp to get these up, hopefully a few are worth it.
