In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed
In the Maritime Sailors' Cathedral
The church bell chimed, 'til it rang 29 times
For each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald.
The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
Superior, they say, never gives up her dead
When the gales of November come early
Bob who understands.....

A good capture of the flyng birds and of the rolling waves, I like the threes different tone of colors of the sky and of the lake. It is giving a charm to the photo. Thanks for sharing.

I think I will let your imagination think of that size of wave.
I enjoy seeing these swans in flight. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Peace be in your season throughout.

Hopefully the worst of the storm is over by now!
I like this capture with the symbolic three geese...
Seasonal greetings from Norway,

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to you.
Wonderful shot portraying the hard things to come. The brownish water illustrates the disturbed water nicely and the swans are desperately flying to safer places. Fabulous documentary shot. Your bedroom window provides a spectacular view most times than not. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

I think you did a wonderful job with this shot.
I really like the placement of the swans on the horizon,and the way they have their wings made for a nice composition.
The colours are very natural and beautiful.

Great capture showing this tumultuous scene, white caps as far as the eye can see. Delaying the homecoming of your captain damn it. Thanks for sharing Donna.
