I wanted to capture Canada geese flying upstream along the Yellowstone River in Montana. They often do this on late-winter evenings, and I was hoping to add an artist touch to the scene by showing movement in the ice-filled river. I set my camera on a tripod, attached a filter to the lens to reduce light, allowing for a long exposure, and took a shot of the river during a March day's last light. I then carefully removed the filter and, without changing focus or moving my camera, waited for geese to begin flying by. With my hand on a remote shutter release, I was treated to a passing hen wood duck and fortunate enough to catch her in one of my images. It was then an easy job to blend the two photos - one filtered and one not - together into this single image.
This is offered at two sizes, and shipping for the framed versions is included to any of the lower 48 states. For framed prints, the image is professionally mounted in Montana barn wood.
