Landing - on Golden Pond

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

It was just a lucky shot as flock of Canadian Geese (about 20) decided to land in the setting sun. I heard their wings, only quickly turned and clicked it.

Placed in the 3rd place in VMC Competition January 2015. The Golden Hour.
