Signs of Coming Winter

Crosswinds Marsh

These geese suddenly appeared while I was photographing a swan in the light of dawn.
As they quickly passed overhead there was time to point the lens but no time to focus.
Seconds after they flew out of sight, a barrage of gunshots broke the morning silence.
Moments later a few of them returned, scattered and mournfully wondering what had happened.

Much prefer an OOF photo than a buckshot any day. Stunning scene Sayer.;o)

Some shots are just meant to be, Sayer. Great timing!

There is a haunting cold chill that surrounds this photo that makes it repulsive and irrestable at the same time.
Guest 03-Oct-2009 17:47
absolutely stunning!!!!!

A friend who posts on pbase just called my attention to this photo. You should definitely consider getting this into a gallery exhibit. You have been magically able to combine photography and painting in this one. The "out of focus" only adds to the picture to make it appear much like a painting. I'd call it a masterpiece! I'm aware that photography might just be an enjoyable hobby to you, but after looking at some of your other photos, I see real talent. Don't keep your skills hidden; display them for a wide audience to enjoy! I have bookmarked your site to see how you do.

What a great capture!! The real beauty of nature shines through. How painful though that some did not survive the flight. Thanks for sharing Sayer.

Beautifully captured and the soft focus adds to the visual beauty of the sunrise, well done Sayer...

Although Tricia is biased, I am not, Sayer. :-) This is a fantastic capture with the geese crossing an awesome morning sky. You could easily sell this one. Big Vote
