I spent last week going out every morning before sunrise and caught this goose taking off. There are ducks in the background, too. Thanks to PJ for her help cloning out a tiny bit of smoke from a fire back on the horizon.

It a great image Hilda, and I love the colour too
However it's not a natural pic, and it's in the wrong gallery.

*bonks Flossman over the head* Of course it's a natural scene. All I did was clone out some smoke that was irritating over in the corner. Hilda's done an excellent job of capturing this gorgeous sunrise.

THE CAMERA'S ONLY JOB is to get out of the way of making photographs. It's entirely an artist's eye, patience, and skill that makes an image. ~Ken Rockwell VISIT MY GALLERY

WOW this is absolutely gorgeous Hilda. I salute you for your dedication getting up every morning to get the shot but it was well well worth it. That goose flying across the frame just makes it, wonderful wonderful work.

Absolutely stunning Hilda! I don't know how much more natural you can get - any smoke would have rendered less so I think! ~Mary~

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes
