Suspended in time

I love images like this Yves.. especially when the subject is a beautiful bird like this among a swirl of sun kissed ripples. The sky color reflected and the droplets cascading from the goose's beak really make this image.. so very tranquil and beautiful!

Thank you Heather. To be honest, I was so mesmerized by that water that I didn't see the droplets from the beak, neither the little rounds create where it falls in the water. It is Jenny, Debra and you that notice it to me.

The water is just as mesmerizing in the image as I am sure you felt in person. Great timing catching the water dripping from the Goose’s bill. Wonderful image Yves.

Thank you for the new word (mesmerising). They where about 10 goose paddling here and there. I have noticed the water reflection was kind of special. I took few shots on goose (not for the goose but for the water around it. On that particular one the reflection just blew me out, mesmerising like you say.. Very precious moment.

Jenny Stevens

Lovely colorations in the water Yves. Nice to capture the drips off his bill.

Thanks Jenny. You noticed that the bird was not the subject here but the water. I know some reflections on waters can be amazing and I like to do shots with waters only for the surprising beauty of thoses reflections. That one surely is the best one so far. My comentary was inspired by that amazing water.

Lovely Canada goose, hovering through waves of string clouds. June the third it was, and the cerulean blue sky uplifted my soul to a suspended time experience.
