Hello Pierre,
Those birds are real survivors!
We see lots of them around here, as they pass by on the flyway spring and autumn...
Seems like they have found an ideal habitat in Norway, much like home for them I will think!

Hi Pierre,
these geese are extremely common in England!
A great shot with a good low-down POV.
One downside is the horizon.
A golden rule for landscape photography is to have an exactly horizontal horizon. Luckily nowadays there are editing softwares that can correct a wonky horizon though.
Well done,

Superb shot that shows the rough environment in which some of these birds manage to live

Hi Pierre. A good telephoto shot of the birds in the centre of this huge seaway/river. Good clarity and topic. TFS. Murray.

Hi Pierre,
You hear so much about the St Lawrence River in history but being from Texas, I have never really seen it. Until now, when I invisioned it I thought only of barges and heavy industrial traffic. A fine capture showing clean water and abundant wildlife. Thanks for sharing.


Jolie photo Pierre, j'aime bien cette composition horizontale et le contraste entre la nature et le décor urbain. Par contre elle 'penche' vers la gauche et le contraste manque de punch. Mais j'aime ! J'ai fait un petit workshop de cette image. Merci !
