Snow Geese - Pennsylvania - Middle Creek Res.

This is a shot from a trip Barbara and I took to Middle Creek Reservoir in Pennsylvania when we still lived there in 2015. This location was further than the location that I would usually travel to for Snow Geese photos, but, indeed as I had been advised, this location had thousands more of the loud, honking, beautiful waterfowl. And it was easier to get at least a little closer to them. I really enjoyed this spot and I hope you like this image..

** 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
