    WOW – you can paint the woods red over there. I’d like to see what it looks like in a week or two.
    I believe you when you write they are geese. Lots of them. It must have been a wonderful sight.

    I can hear ’em! I rarely see large flocks of migrating birds right around here. Somehow I think it’s my distraction rather than their absence . . . Beaver Lake looks very appealing.

    Fall in upstate NY – I’ll bet it’s fabulous!!

    That’s a terrific shot, Scott! The fall colors are so pretty and that’s a lot of geese! We are starting to see a lot of them too as they migrate through here.

    Migration?! In south West Jutland around Ribe (where I was born) you can watch migration of birds every autumn in such numbers that they are called “Black sun”:



  6. Beautiful capture Scott, I love the fall colors 🙂


  7. Hey, I think I know a couple of them! 🙂
    Great shot, Scott. Love the wide angle and the beautiful fall colours.


    • LOL You probably do! These are in fact migrating geese. Sadly, many geese around central New York are year around residents as people feed them. They have become so numerous there is talk of killing many of them as they create quite the mess with their droppings and hazards to people, planes and automobiles.

    I remember your autumn-color-photos from last year, they were beautiful. This year you have a new and even better camera, I wonder what influence this will have at your upcoming photos; can NY fall be shown even more beautiful? Or will you change your angle on the motives, and include more objects? The photo with the geese is activating both eyes and ears, very nice.

    Wow, we lost all our leaves 2 weeks ago with a huge windstorm. Expecting snow soon as we watch it move down the mountains around us.
    I love the sound of huge flocks of birds. Sometimes, I put my camera down and just observe.


    • Well, living in Alaska, you’ve been enjoying fall colors for awhile now, Mike. It’s our turn! 🙂

      On this night, it was very windy so I sat and enjoyed Nature more than I photographed it. This location is very quiet and relaxing as it is far from the main trails and visitor center of the park.

    I enjoyed this lovely scene. I followed the instructions and clicked for the big one – very nice. What a grand grouping of birds and scenery.

    It’s very pretty, especially the larger image. I’ve never seen anything like this before.

  13. Beautiful, beautiful picture and sight, well worth seeing in large. I have not seen many signs of migration over here yet.
