[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Greetings, everyone!
This is my 200th posting on TN. : )
TN has been a source of great pleasure for me in the past 6 months since I joined. I have so very much enjoyed looking at your wonderful, interesting, and inspiring pictures. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members who have taken the time to look at my pictures and helped me become a better photographer. And thank your for your friendship. : )

This sunset shot was taken outside of Lodi, California last year, when we were out there in search of sandhill cranes. It is over such marshlands that thousands upon thousands of sandhill cranes come to roost over the winter months in the course of their migration.

Lovely moody shot Manyee, great colours and congrats on your 200th shot.
Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations for your 200th!
This is a great shot to celebrate that number. Excellent atmosphere with golden lighting and composition. Great moment captured. Only the foreground OOF grass is a bit disturbing, but still a great shot. Thanks for this and you other 199.
Regards, Felipe.

Very pretty sunset. Lovely silhouettes and beautiful yellow sky and reflection. The blurry branches in the foreground distract a bit.
