A lovely view of the geese enjoying a well earned rest on their journey southward. The contrasts in motion and tones of the water are very nicely captured here too, Debra. I've noticed more geese in farmer's fields here recently so it's time to get out with the camera again I think. Hard to believe it's already that time of year again..

You are right Heather, I noticed quite a few geese in the farm fields here as well. Summer went by really quickly but fall is a beautiful time of year. Looking forward to seeing some of your pics. Thanks again.

Thanks Jeff appreciate the comment.

Nicely composed, Debra, with the gravel in the water pointing to the geese in the rear. The colour and the calmness of the foreground water is a nice contrast to the darker and more flowing water on the backside of the gravel.

Thanks Harold, the colour of the water in the gravel pits around here is always a beautiful turquoise. Some areas are extremely deep as well. Very inviting scenery to photograph. I am hoping to see a few herons and egrets during migration this fall.

Yves Langlois

Very beautyful scenic shot Debra. The turquoise blue of the water is terrific. I hope you will have fun with the geese migration and send some nice photos.

Debra Plett

Thanks very much Yves. Yes the turquoise water is very inviting to photographers. Looking forward to hopefully spotting all sorts of birds during migration.

The Canada Geese are starting their migration through Manitoba now. The waters in the local gravel pits will soon be filled with the sights and sounds of Canada Geese resting and refueling before the next leg of their journey south.
