Merrill Creek Winter Sunset

Here we are back to my series of shots I grabbed at Merrill Creek Reservoir a week ago. This is probably one of my favorite scenes. If you squint your eyes, you just may be able to see the long line of Snow Geese floating on the lake near the very far shore. They visit here every winter. Let me know what you think about this one :-)

NIKON D800 1/125 second F/7.1 ISO 125 210 mm (35mm equiv.)

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
