Duck and cover

A webbed waterfowl negotiates a thick stand of lotus off the Fox River in Geneva, Illinois. Geneva is home to a wonderful park located on an island in the Fox, and is a short walk to quaint shops and restaurants in its historic downtown area. Geneva's cinematic claim to fame is its use as a setting in the Tom Hanks film The Road to Perdition.

Nothing perditious about the idyllic setting the day this photograph was taken. Orton effect and color saturation added in post processing.

Photo find of the day: An image of the recent Perseid meteor shower. I had planned to be out photographing the event over the weekend, but my schedule and the weather didn’t permit.
