Snow Geese and Beauty at Merrill Creek, PA

This image was captured 3 years ago at Merrill Creek Reservoir in Eastern Pennsylvania. Many of my most favorite images have come from there.This was an afternoon shot that I composed from the lake's edge following a major snow storm. In the distance, one can see snow geese lifting off. I hope you enjoy this scene as much as I did ;-)

Thank you for looking in on my blog! I truly appreciate your kindness.

- " 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."

::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"
