Wildlife Refuge Sunset
Info + Comments (111)
Made another visit to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and was amazed at the number of snow geese that were there this time. Always something new to discover each time I have visited this fascinating place.
If you've enjoyed my photos, I would greatly appreciate your vote for the 2011 Photoblog Awards.
Truly a magnificent explosion of colors, great capture, congratulations!

Utterly breath taking. I'm glad to know this is a haven of safety. (I was watching the local news a few weeks ago when they told that thousands would be coming to Arkansas to hunt geese) This is just so beautiful. I can imagine the sounds.

Nice to meet ya!!!
@ 2009-12-09 21:06:49
If I were capable of just one single frame as perfect, beautiful and mesmeric as this one, John, I would die a contented man. By far one of the most haunting, mesmeric and emotionally impactive photographs that I have ever seen, it reaches out and soothes my soul.
Sheer quality, class and briliance.
@ 2009-12-10 00:02:49
A glorious image John!! So wonderfully framed and timed...truly a great piece of work!!!
@ 2009-12-10 03:11:42
Very impressive landscape, John. Like the dark, but colorful scenery.
@ 2009-12-10 06:15:28
The sky and reflection are just right and to have the birds is a wonderment!
@ 2009-12-10 06:41:11
This is wonderful! Amazing tones and mood!

Besides the truly wonderful colors I do enjoy the repetition of the > shapes - everywhere in the image.
@ 2009-12-11 05:02:23
Amazing as always, John.
@ 2009-12-11 10:55:24

Love the birds. Great colors.

I love all the colors in this one - so brilliant and yet understated at the same time. Does that make sense? Just beautiful.
@ 2009-12-12 01:35:05
I love the picture, the deluxe edition, good job.
@ 2009-12-12 04:09:02
great timing and what an incredible sunset!!

Straight to National Geographic this one.
Stunning colors and nature moment.
The birds, the skies, the water.... Superb!
@ 2009-12-12 14:15:46
There really aren't words. This is just stunning. Beautiful.

Absolutely wonderful, John. I love the colours and the birds in flight especially.

Great colours and atmosphere, I particularly like the contrast yellow/red - blue/black.
@ 2009-12-13 05:48:15
John - nothing makes me homesick more than your imagery. I used to walk the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay watching these amazing birds. This sunset is spectacular.
@ 2009-12-13 10:07:18
lovely! loved those burning colors and the flying birds just give a life to the image!
@ 2009-12-13 13:12:33
Je ne m'en lasse pas.
@ 2009-12-13 13:34:21
It's great. A beautiful wildlife event.
@ 2009-12-13 15:48:24
I've seen geese once they have taken flight so realise this is a tough capture. I do like the palette to this. Lovely tones.
@ 2009-12-13 19:16:24
Perfect colors in the sky and reflected in the water. The geese make the shot for me - they add quite a few points of interest and also together make a nice strong diagonal.
@ 2009-12-13 22:24:22
WOW! Incredible shot! love the colors! truely magnificent!
@ 2009-12-13 22:49:47
I guess it's also a haven for nature lovers and photographers of all stripes. Superb. Bonne semaine.
@ 2009-12-14 10:35:27
Stunning capture, John. I love everything about this...

Muy buenos dias amigo mio, como siempre un trabajo espectacular, el cielo le ha quedado genial con el sol tras esas nubes, logrando asi ese rojo tan intenso, los reflejos del agua excelentes y esas aves surcando el cielo.
