Just days prior to their return to Labrador and Northern Canada, Thousands of Snow Geese relax in the calm waters on a warm early March afternoon at Pennsylvania's famous Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area

Every year in late Autumn, hundreds of thousands of snow geese and other waterfowl fly south to the US. One of the primary destinations is this spot in south central Pennsylvania - about 90 minutes drive from our house in Eastern Pennsylvania.We visited here on Tuesday, so, hopefully I will have a few presentable images coming along.

** 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
