Taking off on your photographic journey can be daunting task. By surrounding myself with like-minded, determined, patient, experienced photographers, this journey has been made a joyful, uplifting experience. As fellow Nikonians soar to ever higher photographic heights, their knowledge, and more importantly their willingness to share that knowledge, lift me to higher heights as well.
This photo was taken as the sun peeked over the Bridger Mountains, lighting the mist coming off of a mostly frozen pond near Manhatten, MT on 06 NOV'08.

Beautiful! This is the kind of light I fall in love with. There are very nice subtle horizontal lines. With some of the geese being dark silhouette while others are lighter silhouette gives the photo depth. Very nicely done.

I don't know if you were just lucky and happened to take this picture at probably the very short instantaneous moment that mother nature revealed its rare beauty or if you have this natural talent to see and know mother nature moments when you see them. Anyway you hit the very instant in time on this pot of gold. Congrtaulations!

The depth and 3D effect of this shot is stunning, quite apart from the amazing colouring. The foreground birds look as if they have been cut out of paper and stuck on the main photo to create a collage effect. Brilliant.
