Unbelievable timing

Heather Mellon

Timing is everything when it comes to getting a shot like this and you captured the moment perfectly in this beautiful mystical sunrise scene Yves. Your patience in getting this shot paid off in one of those truly magical morning captures. I too am sorry to think that you will no longer be an active part of the site. Your love for nature shines in every photograph that you've shared with us and I am going to miss your narratives which took viewing your work to another level of enjoyment and appreciation. Thank you for your kind comments and the insight you shared with us, they have always been very appreciated. Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and all the very best to you in the New Year and beyond. If you ever reconsider, well, don't think twice about returning.

Thanks Heather. I knew that I had capture something good. But still I was amazed when I saw that I have nailed it (dixit Clifford) on my 17 inches screen. I will have a it printed on a quality poster paper 28x30 inches and put in a beautyful real frame (nothing less). I cheated myself to stay with you longer my friends. I knew it was a matter of time and now it is back. My desire to be part of our little group is not going to fade tomorrow. Today the sky is blocked by a huge mountain, but tomorrow is wide open, miracle do append in my life. The way you express yourself through the comments was for me a delight. Have a Merry Merry Christmast.

Sun just burst over the horizon. The ghostly fog lasted 10 minutes. The mysterious ray of sunlight crossing the scene and morphing a wood stump into a golden statue lasted 2 minutes. The group of graceful geese lasted 2 sec. (and is totaly unpredictable). On that cold morning they all synchronized before my eyes for that picture to be taken. This is my Swan Song. I will not be active on the site anymore. Many thanks to all those that support me with a view during all the passed years.
