Canada Geese in the fog

Good Morning everyone.  Circle was cancelled so I have the day free.  We had 4 inches of snow yesterday, freezing rain last night and then another inch or so of snow on top of that.  They are advising no travel as the roads are very slippery.  And they are still predicting 6 to 12 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. grrrr.

While I was out driving in the fog on Monday, I spied these 2 Canada Geese swimming in a pond.  I don't get wildlife photos very often so I just kept snapping away.













I like the ripples and reflections they make.


Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be around to visit you soon.
Hoping the weather is better where you are.

Barb

Love the fog and reflections! Very nice!

We're not getting snow like you are, but starting tonight into tomorrow we're supposed to have strong thunderstorms with hail and wind. Much cooler temperatures, too.

The color, the reflections, the softness the fog gives it - lovely shots Barb!
I can't imagine that much snow here in April.
Stay in and keep warm!

I love the dreamy quality of these photos. These are very nice, Barb!

Pamela Gordon said...

These are just stunning photos Barb. I think the fog really added to them and the reflections are great! I hope the storm subsides and doesn't bring what they are forecasting. It's coming our way on Friday night with some snow. ;(

Karen said...

Great shots! I like them in the fog, it makes the photos look dreamy!

'days off' are kind of a relief sometimes aren't they? Lovely your misty photos too; certainly give one a feel for quite how cold it is right now for you

Mama Zen said...

Pretty shots!

mick said...

Lovely foggy photos.

Amy Burzese said...

Love the geese. And, Girl, you need to move. It's 80 degrees here today and already too humid. But, we're having storms tomorrow, so we might get blown away. Weather in the south is temper-mental.

I love your photos - and love the geese .....from afar! Every so often they make a home beside one of our ponds, and it's like having a pack of dogs come to visit. They begin to honk at daybreak, and make a mess of our paths and grass....but they are beautiful in flight and to see as they care for their young.

Happy snaps...love your results. My R: http://lore-eleven.blogspot.com/2013/04/barn-light.html

Beautiful Barb. Love fog shots.

Faye said...

Love, love, love these soft "atmospheric" shots that are not strongly colored. The geese are starting to come back to the area. Seeing some early morning chevrons.

Know you all are winter weary, but it could last a bit long for my taste.

Terri said...

Nice shots! I love the fog- it makes everything look so mysterious.

Coombe Mill said...

Canada Geese? WE have 2 landed on our farm today. Well traveled birds!

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

The fog gives a nice quiet effect to the photos.

Nancy Claeys said...

I have a post ready to go about me complaining about the weather... but I feel guilty now after what you received.

Love the Canadas in the fog. Lovely.

Jori said...

I thought spring was here, but today is cold and rainy. I hope your fog goes away soon!

Puxa, quanto FOG! Lindas fotos! beijos,chica

Michelle said...

Wonderful shots of these geese. Sorry about all of that snow. Do stay safe!

Rose said...

I just love these geese....when I was a kid, I hardly ever saw one fly over, much less get as close to them as we do now.

Nell at njschout said...

Absolutely lovely photos in the fog. It softens the photos. : )

Neil said...

Great photos in the fog.

Rebecca said...

I love the softness fog adds to photos.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - these are great - and all the better for being "real fog" rather than some digital effect! Not everyday is bright and sunny, so neither should every picture!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

Debbie said...

WoW, these images are just so special. i don't think i would have taken my camera out. i would not have seen the beauty of the moment that you saw here!!

bummer, about the snow!!

ladyfi said...

Fabulous fog pictures! So atmospheric.

Renae at simple sequins said...

Oh Barb those are such cool photos. I would never consider a fog shot. See you teach me stuff all the time. Thank you for saying my legs are ok if white because the shape is what counts. My Momma had awesome legs and figure. I eat too much to have her figure. hahahahaha. But I have her legs for some crazy reason; perhaps all the dance training I had as a kid? HAVE A MARVELOUS DAY GIRLFRIEND.

EG CameraGirl said...

These photos are great, Barb!

It's snowing here right now. Hmmm. So far it's not sticking but it does feel COLD!

Maple Lane said...

Very serene photos.
Stay safe in your weather.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Love your foggy photos! We don't have snow, but it sure is cold today. I think Spring is a tad confused this year.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Barb, Love these pics and the fog make them look so calm.
Those ripples in the water look so peaceful.
What a wonderful time to be out and take pics.
Your work is amazing and just gets better and better my friend.

Wishing you springtime soon.
Hugs, CM

Judy said...

I love fog shots! I'm like that too, I just snap away and end up with LOTS of shots. So far we've only had rain, crossing my fingers the snow stays away.

Tricia Hays said...

i'm so sorry bout all the snow...

amanda said...

These are beautiful, Barb!

Genie Robinson said...

Barb...I would have been snapping, too. They looks so contented as they rest from their travels. genie

Rosemary Aubut said...

Great series of photos Barb! Love the fog!!!

Buttons said...

Oh BEAUTIFUL photos of those Canada Geese being in Canada I like them:)\I think Spring has gotten lost in it's flight here. :) B

Nancy said...

Very nice photographs, Barb. I think my favorite is the last one. The reflection is exquisite.

eileeninmd said...

They are pretty shots of the geese in the fog. Will the snow and ice ever end? I wish you some nice sunny weather, have a great evening.

ImSoVintage said...

I guess I better stop complaining about our cool down starting tomorrow. I love your photos. Stay safe. xo Laura

Renae at simple sequins said...

We haven't got spring time yet, either. (notice no photos of me outdoors yet) This morning it was 27 degrees: TWENTY SEVEN! OMyGosh! In a week it is forecast-ed to be 77 for the high. Weird dang weather, anyway! My bright colors might be scaring off springtime, ya think?

Dawna Motz said...

What great pictures! We have geese just starting to nest on our pond here in Alberta. Thanks for sharing!
