Just Looking Around

I captured this image, as well as "Going For A Swim", of Canada Geese while in Rensselaer, Indiana on May 25th, 2016. This image is in the same batch as "Going For A Swim", but of a different goose. After photographing the two Canada Geese swimming in the pond, I saw this goose standing still and watching another goose nearby. After it was done watching the other goose, it stood there for a few more minutes watching other geese on the pond, almost as if it were on patrol. I wanted most to capture the profile of the goose due to the dark color of it's head and neck contrasting very well with the background, as well as the detail and texture of it's feathers. I also wanted to use bokeh (blur) on the pond in the background (the green color of the water is a reflection of the vegetation on the other side of the pond).

Printed on Hahnemühle German Etching paper. Limited to 200 productions per size.

Framed prints are available in 20" x 16", 30" x 24", and 40" x 32" sizes.
