Here is a single photo to thanks the people that have put some nice notes on John photo.

I'm still so busy currently that I cannot really come back to TL, I won't have time to critic and comments your photos and I don't want to just put photos on the site without being really active.

This photo was taken at Baie-du-Febvre early in the morning. At this place you can see over 200000 snow geese in the spring. you should see them take off all at the same time in the morning to go to the cultivated field around, to eat and rest, at night they all come back to the water covered field where they sleep. After 3-4 weeks of resting they continue their trip up north.

Jolie réalisation avec une métrice impressionnante de la luminosité et les techniques de mise au point.

Hé ben, quand on parle du loup :-).
Superbe capture. Excellente netteté et détails.
Tout simplement fantastique.

Great composition and color tones. Nice capture on the silhoutte migrating birds against the dissipating sunlight and the slightly visible clouds on the FG. great shot luc, tfs! jowhite

Glad to see your new post, Luc. I am impressed that you didn't get any flare in your lens while shooting the shot. The composition is perfect, especially with two geese crossing the sun.

Bonjour Luc,
La visite surprise d'un ami fait toujours plaisir même si ce n'est pas pour longtemps.
Le rêve : pouvoir voler comme ces oies pour contempler la terre d'en haut. Magnifique reflet noir sur fond doré.
Bonne continuation dans ton travail, profites pleinement de ta vie. Sois heureux

Bonsoir Luc,
Une superbe photo de ce lever de soleil à Baie-du-febvre avec les oies blanches qui passent devant le soleil levant, couleurs,composition,netteté et un excellent POV. Bravo..

Luc, I just receieved an email from Vandana pointing this one out!
(Thanks Vandana)
Man.. my article was not for nothing: Again we see your skill.

A photo directly in to the Sun was asking to be declared crazy in general.
But there is one photo magician who comes away with it,, stronger:

Makes a super shot of it!!A winner. We even see deails in the clouds. The work of an artist LucBus! Award for this :

The Silver Tulip

Welcome back to TL Luc, it was a long gap since you posted last.

The picture in view is simply splendid. An immense charm of vision and attraction is there. An array of birds are well taken against the light. Golden hue is fantastic. Well done my friend.

Many thanks for sharing this image.
