Hardwick Hall, Sedgefield
The ducks at Hardwick Hall Country Park near Sedgefield in County Durham are ridiculously tame, as we found out on a recent afternoon away from South Shields.
We travelled to the park in the former constituency of Tony Blair to try and get away from the wet weather here, it’s still raining as I type, and amazingly as we walked around the ducks waddled behind almost demanding that we throw them bread! They have no fear of getting up close and personal either, the trick to this shot was to set the camera on self timer and then put it on the ground.
Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/30 second, f6.7, iso 200
