I saw some ducks on Spectacle Lake while I was walking one of the dogs. I went home and got my camera. As luck would have it they were still there when I got back. Of course, as I got close enough to shoot they instantly took off. While I was waiting in vain for their return I noticed this stump, almost glowing in the low, late afternoon sun. Something about the texture and colour of the wood intrigued me.
