I wanted to find a group of Irises in a spot that would place this wonderful looking Torii behind it. When I found a good grouping I opened my lens to it's widest aperture to create a nice soft background and waited for a duck or two to pass by at just the right spot. Waiting for moments like this to occur is one of the most therapeutic and relaxing things I do. I literally feel the stress of the work week drain out of my body while I peacefully wait for the right moment.
