rain dimples the water

and restless geese preen and paddle,
waiting for a signal to rise

Lovely layering in your image, BC, and the text, as is often the case, is such a delight that I read it out loud.

Thank you.

A fine fall photo. Same weather where I live.

I agree with Julie's comment above. The layering of the foreground grasses, the followed by the water and geese, and fall colors in the background, is enchanting. Her compliments for your text are well deserved, except it is too early in the morning to do any out loud interpretive reading.

That is quite a gaggle of geese, of that is the correct term.

Wow. This is a perfect picture of fall.

Perfecto! I'm looking at an almost identical view this morning, but your words make it even grander.

Another one for the wall, Brattcat! Frame it and hang it. Or sell it to Outdoor Life magazine.

Simply superb! The colors, the light - everything. It's really quite breathtaking.

Merci!

Amazing - every goose paddling with its own agenda!

I love the transition from sharp to soft focus in this shot, and of course, the NE fall colors! (I don't so much like geese: messy creatures!)
