Gosh, Peter and sritri; I'm touched...
Seriously though, if I have ever communicated "tranquility" and "sensitivity for colour and mood" with an image, then I count that as one of my rare truly successful accomplishments in this fascinating art/hobby...
Lift me right out of the doldrums, y'all; many thanks...
Meanwhile, at sunrise this morning at a nearby wildlife reserve, these Canada geese announced their arrival in plenty of time for me to be ready...with the 500 f/4L (Mk. I).
Later, I walked up on a doe just out of my back yard; first peeking at me through the brush, then tolerating a pretty close approach (about 40 feet for the second frame). Autofocus wouldn't reach through the berry bushes in the beginning, but once I "close-focused" manually, the camera held to the deer perfectly...pleasing, indeed...both made with 300 2.8L IS (Mk. I).
