Hallo Tom
This is definitely just what the doctor has ordered for the most of us for today. Looking at this image relaxes the body, and calms the nerves and makes one just more grateful to be part of nature that surrounds us. This is truly a magic moment you captured and shared. The colours are awesome. Best wishes.

Hello Tom

In one word very beautiful photo of these
Common Cranes in-flight with the wonderful
warm light and color tones of the background,
the dark silhouettes of the Cranes are doing
great contrast with their background warm colors, TFS

Hello Tom,
Beautiful photo of these cranes as dark silhouettes against this splendid sky. Fantastic choice of composition.

Bonjour Tom,
Toi aussi tu reviens en France ? Je suis souvent allé voir les grues au lac du Der, mais je n'ai jamais vu un aussi beau ciel avec un beau vol en formation. Bien joué, la lumière est évidemment superbe et la répartition des oiseaux dans le cadre très esthétique.

Hello Tom,
Beautiful capture of a flock with fine sharp contour,lovely composition with vibrant colours tone.
TFS and my regards,

Hi Tom,
Exceptional composition my friend! The silhouettes of the Cranes etched against the beautiful warm colours gives me that "far away" feeling. The birds are perfectly placed and your POV could not have been better. I am glad so see that you have such wonderful exposures still in your archive. In the "More photo info" it refers to a 40D?
Best regards,

I Love this picture for the mood, the hues and the tones of the sky is special , very artistic picture
