I loved that last one. it looks great with the birds there 🙂
Thank you Filipe. 🙂
Ah, that last image!
They are all lovely, but the geese shot is incredible!
Thank you Anita!
The top ones look like wonderful abstract art pieces.
I was thinking I might try some paintings inspired by these….
Lovely as always. And then to finish it off that fab and beautiful capture at the end. Great!
Thank you Inga.
Love the last one !
It seems the geese are popular!
These geese are the perfect closing… like the cherry on top of the cake! As I said in your previous fog post, …”connected”!
Much appreciated Marina.
I love these! My favorite is the unexpected last photo… So eerie and mysterious, yet beautiful! Very poetic imagery. I have enjoyed this series thoroughly! Great work! 🙂
thank you Polly!
The geese in the fog are beautiful! Love the haunting quality of the shot!
Glad you like them, thank you.
Beautiful, especially the first and the last. You even persuade the geese to perform for you!
Ha, ha, thanks Louis! It may have been a mating dance for the female! 🙂
These are so serenely beautiful, Karen. Poetic.
Thank you Lois!
You find the most beautiful places! These photos are wonderful – especially the last one 🙂
I appreciate you saying that , thank you so much!
Your shots are amazing as always. They mesmerize me with their simplicity. Geese are always entertaining to me. Thank you for sharing.
A very kind comment Max, thank you. Geese are entertaining for sure! 🙂
Amazing photos! Love the geese in fog.
thank you Karen 🙂
The landscape is always so beautifully barren and bleak. It really forces you to look for the uncommon beauty that most people ignore.
It’s almost a light theme in your work and definitely the thing that keeps drawing me back here.
A man stopped me when I was photographing the shoreline, he said:
“Can I ask you, do you see something that I don’t see?”
that question has been bouncing around in my brain for days…
I would have told him “I might.”
I said, “I see …. compositions… in the lines..in the cracks…”
I’m not sure he understood.
thank you! 🙂
The last picture is so beautiful !
Thank you Mathias!
Wonderful again, yes the last one has so much going for it. But I like the cracked Ice in picture one, a real feeling of the cold depth of the fog.
Jim, Thanks so much for your comment.
They’re all great images, but the way you captured the (ghostly) stateliness of the trees in the last one is breathtaking because of the contrast with the liveliness of the geese in the foreground. Beautiful stuff.
Richard, thank you so much! 🙂
Definitely in the groove! Subtle and understated awesomeness!
Thanks Steve. 🙂
love the fog and these pics especially the last. great!
I love the last one with the geese and the trees…unbelievably beautiful…peaceful…. Very nice, Karen….
The Canadian geese are a hit! Thank you Scott, much appreciated.
You’re very welcome…. 🙂
Karen! That last shot is just so spectacular! So so beautiful. I need it for my wall 😉
I’ll put it in with the others! thank you so much Marina! 😀
Beautiful, as always, Karen. And even though I’m repeating many of the comments, the last shot is incredible. Great work!
Thank you Erica, I’m happy you like them!
Beautiful as always!
Gaby, thank you very much!
Nice photographs showing the promise of changing seasons with a great parting shot.
Much thanks Joseph.
As I scrolled down and saw the trees in the fog I was delighted. I love photos of trees emerging out of the fog, then I continued to scroll and the two geese made it absolutely perfect!!
You are right, photographers do see the world differently. With luck others see what we saw in our finished work. 😉
It must be because we are always looking! It makes driving challenging! 🙂
It ‘s not the driving it is it just takes us so much longer to get there. We never know how often we’ll have to pull over and stop!!! Someone was joking about a person who couldn’t figure out how long it would take to drive 80 miles if you were going 80mph. I replied, “depends on if they are a photographer.” Someone else replied, “Depends on how many small children are in the car.” 😉
Wow, these are almost like paintings. Love the mood to them. 🙂
Thank you so much Katie!
Beautiful. I love the goose just having a shake in the mist. They seem a little lost.
They would probably prefer a little more open water, it must be cold on their feet! Thanks Anne.
Geese greeting the changing of the season. I especially love that last image!
Words are useless, Karen. The photos speak for themselves. Brilliant series, nothing less than I expected.
I am humbled by your words, thank you.
… the geese! I love all the photos but the last one of the geese comes as a surprise and I love surprises!
I love your photos especially the last one!!
Thank you very much, I’m glad you do!
Wow what a collection.. You have a great talent for capturing nature in all its beauty.. love especially the last shot…
Asif, thank you.
omgosh … love it so much! Beautiful. Actually haunting but in a non-scary way. There is a fairytale in the last photo. 🙂
Aww, thank you so much Gigi, I’m happy you respond that way.
The last picture. Simply. Stunning.
Thank you ! 🙂
