The last light by Robert van der Sanden

The last light

After a long day of photoshooting I fired my last shots as the light was soon to disappear. The birds gathered on these trees to spend the night. They had fed on a dead black bear just around the corner. I was hungry too. Time to call it the day and drive back.

Cees Kuijs, 20.02.2006 at 20:53h

Wonderful colors.What kind of birds are they, eating dead bears ??
Greetings, Cees

Karl Makkina, 20.02.2006 at 22:13h

congrat' for this great picture
warm colors, i like it very much

Robert van der Sanden, 20.02.2006 at 22:47h

Thanks for your nice comments :-)
@Cees: I guess the birds are vultures, or blackbirds. A hundred or so sat in a nearby tree in the afternoon, eating the remains of a dead bear that was lying there. Not a nice smell, I can tell you.

Excellent and exquisite one with brilliant colors and notable performance of the scenery! Unfortunately just used my proposal yesterday otherwise this will surely be the most ideal one for recommendation. :)

Robert van der Sanden, 21.02.2006 at 17:42h

@Anastasya: I'm glad you like the picture. Your suggestion to propose it is a real nice compliment :-))
I was quite excited when I took this picture. Running around in the wetland through high weeds to find the perfect spot to capture the last rays of light. Every time my tripod got stuck in the branches... nice memories...

Robert van der Sanden, 22.02.2006 at 10:26h

Thanks guys! :-))

Anastasya Ivanova, 22.02.2006 at 14:39h

No problem...I will put this one into my favorite till next time when the proposal is available again. :)
I did the same too in the moors, wastelands, swamps of my countryside here in order to find any good site for catching unusual views. hmm...about the latest picture those are wind power generators, not mills. :)

Robert van der Sanden, 22.02.2006 at 15:04h

Thanks Ana, very sweet of you :-)
I recognized the power generators, we have them too. But we call everything with blades a windmill here in Holland...

Jutta Washington, 22.02.2006 at 20:38h

Normally I would look for a little more detail in the dark areas, but this shot works beautifully as a silhouette.

Thanks :-)

Detlef Klahm, 19.05.2006 at 14:36h

several things work well in this image.
3 is always a number that works well in images
horizon kept low to give us little dead space
very good exposure to give us awesome colour and good silhouette details.
wonderful image Robert !

Wen P, 31.10.2006 at 13:49h

I wasn't here for this vote. Congrats Robert. Disapointed I didn't get to vote so chalk another pro up.

Robert van der Sanden, 31.10.2006 at 20:26h

Thanks Wen, I appreciate it.
(Dirk, can you add one vote please?)
