D2x, 17-55mm f2.8 @28 mm, 1/250s,f5.6, iso 400.The Mount House on Gagetown Island, NB, is the first stone house built in the province. The sky had just starting to clear up as the sun now low on the horizon just turns all the clouds on fire. The luckiest thing was to get this ospray not only in the frame but also hit by a sunray.

Thank you Leanne, it is one of these shots that happened like that, for a quick instant, and if you're lucky enough to be there when it occurs, then it might become a real feast for your eyes, and memories...because this very moment will last in me forever. Best Regards, Chris #5236809

Wow! Congratulations on your placement in the Better Photo monthly contest Christian. It is truly a mark of excellence to even make finalist here and placing as an end month winner is a confirmation that you love what you do and do what you love.
As you know, I've had the pleasure of seeing this image in large format print, and for those whom have not, I can assure you that it is even more grand when you can see it in person.
Congratulations also on your Best of show with this in the Canadian Forces 2007 annual photo contest, and feature in Digital Photographer Magazine. I know there are other things developing (no pun intended) with your work, and I'm very happy that you've finally decided to show your works on-line here with Betterphoto, and hopefully other sites soon.
Congratulations again my friend.
