So much beauty in your scene with the Crane's in a snow storm. Nice capture of the snow falling and like the circular movement in the water. Very well photographed with good lighting, sharp focus, and good details in your image. I I like this artistic composition. Outstanding work and thanks for sharing. Happy New Year!

EyeCATching trio!
I can almost hear the sound made by that open beak!
Palpable chill...
Nice ripples...
An artistic rendition. Monochromatic colors. Excellent details & features. Impressive setting & textures.

Thanks for sharing...

Sounds like a good idea judging by the look of the cold conditions presented in your nice nature shot! Your fine entry into the competition benefits from being well composed, sharp with good exposure. Well done and good luck!

I love this! Love the Sandhill cranes and the three different poses, the one on the left has something to say ! This is beautiful! Well focused , the image is clear, exposure is well managed, colors and tones are natural, nice detail in their feathers, beautiful work on the falling snow! Well composed with this trio in a nice placement in the frame, I love that they are slightly out of center! This should be printed and framed! That's one thing about winter and snow, it allowed you to get this shot! Very well presented! Best wishes to you in the contest!

    Thank you very much. Last year they stayed until Jan. 5 and this year they were gone by Thanksgiving. They must know when the water is going to freeze because in both cases the water was frozen within 2 days after they left. I had really hoped to get them in falling snow a couple times but this was it. I got several shots on this morning. Glad you like this one. Thanks again.
