Absolutely brilliant shot Roy!

What a well timed shot and the fog makes it look even better

Wonderful capture! This puts the one I didn't get today in the shade.(I forgot my camera, and couldn't get the sight of a "W"formation of Geese flying south into the Sunset!!)


Comment by alan on 8th November 2010 at 03:37
That was a fast shutter speed.
Canada Geese seem to be regarded as vermin in some places, but I live next to a lagoon which is a migratory bird sanctuary, where there are over a hundred of them. I like them, vermin or not.

Stunning!

How good is that...artistic..beautiful.


Comment by John Morris on 8th November 2010 at 09:35
Absolutely wonderful. The almost monochrome effect suits this shot to perfection. Did you de-saturate it or was that the way it was? Frame it and put it on your wall.


Comment by Fred Mason on 8th November 2010 at 10:03
