Snow Goose Terra Nova Rural Park N5710e

I saw the large flock of snow geese in Terra Nova Park.


How did I pick one for the shot? Everyone of them looks almost the same to me.


It is simple and easy. Because I picked the background first. I chose the red bushes as the background and this one had his/her head up against the red bushes. And here is it.


I have read so many stories of photographers making their pictures by picking the background first. They selected the desired background or scene first and then wait for something to happen in it and then shoot.


Background is actually the subject sometimes.


Right after this shot. The whole flock of snow geese flied away and I left the park.


Happy Sunday!
