Early this afternoon, near where I live.
The sky is very gray, everything is still bare, but the snow and ice is melting away.

Near a river. The first flights of geese and ducks are arriving back from wintering down South.

Later in the afternoon the sun actually showed up to provide just a little color.

Yep, another one for two. When you can find a photo in all that brown and dead, you've got an eye. Keep 'em coming!

Hi Frits !
#2 is a pleasure to look at - the tonalities translate the moody haze just right. And we read the birds going from right to left as coming back.

Thanks all for your kind comments. I like the second a lot also, in fact it prints beautifully.
I like thinking outside the box at times. When you look at the 2nd shot, you will see that it is from about the same position as #3, the classic landscape image with the lens that goes with it.
Earlier, when it was still pretty hazy, I slapped on the 105mm to get some pastel effect - or at least try and see what it would look like.
Well, whaddaya know :smile: : hmmm, looks OK, nice lines throughout the image, rule of thirds is there... Then, by a stroke of dumb luck, the point of interest was provided by the flight of geese that came out of nowhere....CLICK, gotcha!
