Painted Geese

No, not a painting, but an image of geese over an outcropping of trees. It took a lot of patience to get this shot with the geese as the sky was mostly clear of birds though we could hear them in the distance. Fortunately for me (unfortunate for the geese) hunters scared them up from a few miles away and they flew over the wildlife refuge I was at.

The image has been heavily processed in Topaz Adjust and Photoshop. I had no idea of how I would process this image but thought it would be good to play with Topaz with. I'm still experimenting with that software and I really like what it can do.

A very pretty capture you have, Perry. I got a picture of some of our birds this morning.

Part of gaggle of blackbirds swooped down on the neighbor's tree on our property line to visit a busy woodpecker. The rest settled on the bush next to the tree.

They had just gotten there and I probably spooked them with the camera. At any rate they all flew off leaving the wookpecker now away from his hole and up on top of the tree.

Well, whatever you did I love it. Love the colors and shadows. Its kind of dreamy and not in a bad way.

It does look like a painting - the dark clouds give it a very moody feel!
