Take one Canadian girl in les Alpes.
Add the ups & downs of living in France.
Cover with melted cheese...
Et voilà !

There are a lot of beautiful things to take photos of here in Annecy.  

The gorgeous buildings & canals in the old town, 
the amazingly clear water in the lake, 
the lovely mountains. 

Oh, and the water fowl.

Don't get me wrong... I like ducks as much as the next guy.
I can see how a swan floating along on the Lac d'Annecy makes for a good photo.

In fact, I could easily put an entire blog post together 
featuring all the snapshots I've taken 
of the scenic combination
that is birds + water + mountains.

That being said, I have a feeling my passion (?) for duck-based photography
pales in comparison to this guy, spotted down at the lake not too long ago.

Ready to check out his impressive technique?

Step 1:  Walk out on pier to get as close as possible to duckies.
Step 2:  Crouch down on all fours & stabilize camera against dock.
Step 3:  Look completely ridiculous with your fesses in the air for all to see!

Any questions?


  1. Oh, my goodness! This fellow is certainly a dedicated photographer!

  2. You should've snuck up behind him and given him a little nudge. Then he could have got an awesome underwater shot...

  3. now that could be me... ! my husband used to joke how ridiculous photographers included his wife, look... and the beautiful green water of the Lac d'Annecy reminds me of some fond vacations. thanks !!
