The City Daily Photo community has been experimenting with mid-month theme days and this one is perfectly suited to me - the Equinox. Do check out the other submissions from all over the world - there are some incredibly creative photographers in our community!
I approached the theme literally - as usual - and strove to depict balance. The trees are roughly equidistant from the edges of the frame, there's about as much water as land and about as much ice as water if we consider the snow on the ground. More philosophically, the ducks - male and female - are mates. They've weighed the benefits of migrating against the costs and decided to brave the ice and snow in order to have first pick of the nesting sites. Their survival and their offspring's is in the balance. Drama right here in the middle of the city.
