Nice place, Bob. It looks like some places in my country, maybe only we don't have so much stones. Composition is great, colors are very natural and scene is so peaceful

Nice peaceful autumnal scene you captured here with Canada Geese having a rest on the way south. The lighting, colors and composition are great and the reflection in the water gives the whole a feeling of serenity. The autumnal framing is very suitable here.
TFS and have a great weekend,

Many birds seem to be masters at finding the most peaceful places on earth (although I bet they squabble there too!). You're lucky to have this beautiful lake near you, the kind of place that is good for the soul! I like the peaceful setting and the wonderful colours. A beautiful scene!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
this is such a nice shot!
The mirrored effect is excellent.
+++ Very sharp and detailed. Vibrent colours and decent lighting. Very well composed.
--- Nothing :D
p.s I added a photo to the theme you created :)

Geese or not, i like to look at this as a superb landscape!
This is a wonderful habitat, one that i would just have a blash walking through and taking some pictures.
The view here is lovely and presents this nice colony enjoying a beautiful day in the sun.
The colors here are charming and well saturated and the perspective and POV are great, with some nice reflections from your subjects and a nice view over the farther bank.
Bravo and TFS

A wonderful, serene autumn scene. I love the trees and the geese in the lake. Colors and compositions are wonderful. I hate to think that they may be considered illegal aliens.

This is truly wonderful Bob!
Superb to find a nature reserve close to home! Let's hope it stays that way
P.S. My fiancé saw that you'd written you'd be able to visit me twice a day. You can imagine that he had a thing or two to say about that!
A peaceful corner of the world, full of nature's beauty!
The autumn colours and the geese enjoying their life is a pleasure to my eyes...
A fine presentation, a well balanced composition!
What a wonderful scene you captured,
Perfect composition,lighting and framing,
Perfectly laid out...everything's there, the content, the light, a great mix of colour - brilliant. Real 'Grizzly Adams' country!

Good Morning Bob,
Your photo is beautiful but your note brought a few tears to my eyes. Isn't it something, I mean really just when we start feeling bad for ourselves about something in our lives that has changed or we are having a sad day, something like this comes to us and says, wait, your not alone I'm looking after you.
BTW- alot of people around don't like the Geese because they say they are messy, I love seeing them and somedays I sit and watch their interactions for hours as they are so funny , its almost like they are conversing. Plus I think they are beautiful, I love your photo, the fall colors, the pond and all the beautiful geese, TFS

Excellent composition. With all of the natural beauty, it would seem as if the photo is cluttered with things, but this isn't so. This is fall in the making with sharp details, changing colors (and autumn is the season of change!), and the wonderful ripples of the water. This photo has clarity, emotion, and there's not only the hint of fall in the air, you have immortilized this particular fall day. Love this.

VERY INTRESTING shot. It's fine to see them where they really live. In Quebec they are just visiting us couples of weeks in autumn and same time in spring.
A REALLY BEAUTIFUL PICTURE... seems a quiet place to live (without hunters)!
Regards and TFS

Fascinating and peaceful landscape with wonderful light and splendid autumn colours. The water looks very inviting, would love to be sitting at a bench just appreciating this wonderful scenery. I think this is the ideal place to relax and forget about the daily rat race we experience. Such a beautiful place! Cool, refreshing and tranquil, nature at its best. Congratulations and thank you very much for sharing.
