Hoi Paul,
je hebt wel de klasse om van een foto net weer iets bijzonders te maken. Naast dat je een groep bijzonder vogels laat zien, laat je ook een groot deel van het landschap zien. Iets wat ik zelf altijd erg mooi vind.
Ze waren met z'n allen wel lekker bezig om een sporen achter te laten zeg. Een mooie foto, met een perfect scherpte diepte.
