very nice shot Debra from the immediate foreground to the top of the sky. All the colours help lead one through this entire image.

Thanks Jeff, I lightened the shadows a bit to bring out the foreground grasses.

Yves Langlois

The composition reflects the marvellous vision you have at nature. I can see you there feeling the pleasure of doing few shots, different compo, and finaly placing the sun in that opening. Very well done.

Debra Plett

You are right about that Yves. I stood and took in the beautiful colours in the skyline and just enjoyed the sunset as it was unfolding over the landscape.

Harold Fleming

Just enough light in the foreground grasses to hold the eye for a while before viewing the beautiful colours in the sky, Debra.

Debra Plett

Thanks Harold, I had to lighten the shadows a bit to bring out some of the marsh detail.

Heather Mellon

This is such a beautiful shot, Debra. You captured an amazing background sky and I especially love how the sun caught some of the tall grasses here. It adds another dimension to a really gorgeous sunset view.

Debra Plett

Thank you Heather the marsh is especially beautiful as the sun is setting. I am hoping to go back a couple of more times before migration ends. Maybe I will be lucky enough to get a flock flying through the sunset.

The setting sun was peaking over the marsh grasses at Oak Hammock Marsh. I would have liked a flock of geese to be flying through the frame but mother nature thought otherwise.
