The late afternoon Spring sun casts long shadows across a dock at the Cooper River Marina, home to our 1986 Catalina 22, “Seanachai”.  This pair of mallard ducks found a bit of cool respite in a strip of shade.  Ducks are very light sleepers, resting their heads on their backs and tucking their beaks into their feathered wings for a bit of extra warmth, but with sharp eyes popping open at the slightest threat to their safety.  The original image was shot in color and desaturated to contribute to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge “words that end in ock”
