THURSDAY'S CRITTER -- Goose in the Evening Light


Blogger micki said...

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Kodak Ultra Color ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/90
Aperture Setting - f-5.6 Program Mode
Lens - Sigma 70-300mm zoom lens @ 300mm
Scanning Method - Epson Perfection 4990 Photo scanner

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at and I will be happy to provide you with one.

Today’s photo is one of those I had wanted to post when I received the print back in May, but couldn’t because my old scanner couldn’t properly scan the image. Well, it was no problem for the new scanner. So here is “Goose in the Evening Light.” Better late than never.

I really like the position of the goose's head relative to the side light. The rim lighted effect adds to the dramatic impact. Nicely done...Congrats to the new scanner too!

Geese certainly have, well, er, personality. My old office in St Louis was built in a former bean field. The geese did not care about its "former" status. the still nested there in the spring. The chose the islands in the parking lot. Getting out of your car was a daily adventure at that time of year.

We used to have geese when I was young and still at home. Personality is right. They have plenty and will let you know up front what they think.
Lovely shot, congrats on the scanner.
How did we live before scanners???

That's a beautiful critter, Micki. But, to tell you the truth, I'm missing my frogs! How are they getting along? :-)

I can well imagine your old scanner having problems here but this new scan lives up to the name of Perfection. The strong lighting has held up well and the detail in the shadows remains firm.

You got a new camera or ssanner or something, the clarity of your images starting to come through a lot more, this for me is an awesomely beautiful capture.

I still look forward to these shots that were previously not scanworthy - gorgeous side lighting here to accentuate the curious attitude of this feathered friend :-)
