Mallards Take Off

The attached picture was taken in January 2005 in Helsinki.  There is a power station in Salmisaari emptying part of its cooling waters to a small bay and  keeping there a small area unfrozen.  I was approaching the place when mallards decided to leave and I managed to get this shot.  Exposure is a bit long (1/250)  and does not completely freeze movement but perhaps  improves atmosphere  in the picture.
