Hallo Jose
Thanks for sharing this striking image as part of your Christmas message, as it is truly beautiful and so appropiate to this time of year. It looks as if the Swan is using its wings to say "Peace to all". The composition and point of view is pleasant and the water which creates a natural frame around the swan is the ideal backdrop too. My best wishes and may I use this oppertunity to wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas.

Hello Jose
exciting capture of this goose in action. The color is so well balanced and wonderfully frozen.
The low level composition gives a special effect and exciting scenery.
