Absolutely magnificent. It's as if you had the geese "pose" for you. Amazing that you could capture the grace and beauty of flight, and then top it off with such rich color and set a mood of serenity. What a great shot. You should be very pleased and proud.

Okay first off forgive me for asking but did you add the geese? If not however did you get the lighting you did here. Fill flash I have to know, this is simply stunning. The over all scene, and the sunrise colors and then those geese flying through WOW. I agree with others a winner for sure.
