lensbaby picture, snow geese explosion, from car window

title is a line from one of posthumous' poems

Thank you for the generous votes and kind comments. When I happened on the geese, all I had with me was a 200mm and a lensbaby ;-) They are always an awesome sight to behold!

Posthumous (that poet bloke) remarked that art inevitably derives from context, or words to that effect. Ever since, I have looked at every visual work with wiser eyes, and listened to music with wiser ears (if you can imagine a pair of wiser ears?) I liked this picture when I first beheld it, post-challenge. Then I saw the title, and I went from liked to loved in one breath. Shreds of billets-doux. The picture is elevated by the words, but the words are also elevated by the picture.

Some tiresome folks among us insist that a worthy picture should be able to stand without words; without a caption or title. To which I say Pshaw! They know nothing of pictures nor of words. I'd dare them to look at this picture, to read these words, and then to step outside and say that again.

Bravo to you both, and thank you.

I love this. Many won't but it is pure artistry and the light is fantastic. The effect of panning with a slow shutter and getting the blurred background with some of the birds in focus is pure genius and creates an almost ethereal effect. My vote for the blue or at least a ribbon
