Winter Refuge

By gajj
Another viewpoint, Bear River Bird Refuge. One couldn't spot them, but as the storm moved in we could hear the cacaphonous call of hundreds of tundra swans seeking safe harbour.

Best viewed large format if available.

Sorry for the earlier delete, wasn't pleased with the end result yet.

I have to cover up the text on the left to really appreciate this as it draws my eye away from the lovely soft image

edit: Just looked at the larger version and it's stunning - the text certainly doesn't distract from that

Love the light filtering through and the 'cold' feel of this shot Jane

Thank you all - I have to admit that I now find the writing distracting as well - blame it on the flu! I'd make a change but EPZ upload/delete watchdog would have a fit and tell me no!

Yes, writing aside - excuse acceptedWink, this is a winner to my mind Jan. I can't inderstand why it's had so little comment. Sometimes it just goes like thatSad

Exceptional landscape photograph. The composition is beautiful. The large view is a must...absolutly nothing wrong with the writing in the large view. Please print and notch photography...

A touch of envy from me...wish I had taken it
