Canada Geese were feeding in a foggy field when I set out for a morning hike. I knew they would eventually fly off, especially if an eagle flew overhead, so I set up my camera and waited. As I stood there, the fog began to lift and dissipate, and the rising sun cast shadows of the cottonwoods on the adjacent barn. After about 30 minutes, the geese did fly off, and I waited until they were in the right place for the best possible composition before making the photograph. Photo © copyright by Stephen Penland.
