Oh this would be perfect for a negative space discussion topic I've been thinking about! Great impact for me, Piet, with the uniformity of color and texture, just a bit of darker on upper right. Love this photo! Did you use burst mode? Usually I capture headless flying birds :)

hi Linda, I need to get better at these!! I DID use burst mode, the others had head missing - was mostly flying away from me.

Here is one of those images where sharpness is not what is sought or valued. The softness of the grayish tones, the gliding form, the shimmery grasses just beneath him. This is a beautiful sense of place image that makes me feel the vast solitude of wetlands.

Some of my dam birds are like that - including some I got this morning.

Please keep posting the images you're acquiring in your new location, which looks to be a wonderland.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

thank you Min an Chuck - I appreciate your vote of confidence. Tomorrow is calling for snow, perhaps five inches, which is very odd for this area. The ground is frozen, anything that hits will keep. I think my camera, my dog, and myself will get wet and cold!
