Great shot with all the birds and the small island, Ryan! Almost looks like a B&W picture. I also love the sail boat! Greetings, Anne

Thank you Tamás, Anne, and Maria Jose! The clouds and fog kept coming and going, and quite a few of the pictures I took this day very nearly were black and white. The sailboat went by the island on its own, so I just had to wait for the birds to get to the right places.

Cheers, Ryan

The boat looks like it's sailing across an unplanted field. Very nice illusion!


Ryan Calhoun on February 7, 2008

Thanks Dann! Yes, the water has a very cold, kind of "heavy" look to it. The light and darks bars are because there were so many clouds, but big gaps with open sky as well. Ryan

Thought it was one of those Missouri prairie schooners ...

The Show-Me State never was much for prairie schooners, Dann. The terrain is far too rough, and there are over 10,000 bridges in use today. You'd have more likely seen heavy riverboat traffic up to Independence, MO, where the prairie schooners take over on their way across Kansas or Nebraska.
