I was actually about to title this photo “Coming home”.
Most tourists who survived the disaster of Asian now are arriving by plane. Some with broken legs and wounds – but all with marks on there souls.
The number missing tourist from European Countries terrifying and each day the hope of finding them alive becomes smaller – This tragedy worldwide and we MUST, all help those who lost everything.

Hej Jeppe, and happy New Year. A beautiful and serene scene with the silhouettes of the flying birds, and the sun sort of vanishing into the sea. A valuable combination of photo and note to commemorate this tragedy that escapes words, and I can only fully agree with what you say about us having to do all we can in order to provide some sort of help or relief.

Yes, the disaster is so very :((( I follow all the news about people who are coming home now.
About the picture: very good and warm atmosphere! Nice compostion with both sun, water, birds and grass. Very well done!
Only one thing: I have the feeling that it is a bit too strong, especially the contours of the sun, but that's just a small thing.

Great picture here Jeppe and very nice note from you about all those victims. I jjust saw on TV a team of people going to Tailand to try to find the missing people among 2000 bodies...
I agree also with you that we must help...

Hello Jeppe, nothing to say but a spectacular shot. Really nicely silhouetted and the colours are fantastic. I've tried to capture birds in flight before without much sucess. This is wonderful. Don

A wonderful picture, and a wonderful tribute. All the best for 2005.

A superb image, with perfect dof on the mid ground & background. The silhouettes of the birds against the setting sun are stunning.

In the same mood as Mohammad, very beautiful Jeppe, beautiful timing Jeppe withthe birds, great colors and light, excellent depth. Happy new Year, best wishes !

Jeppe, indeed flying geese represent travel and migration very well, so your note is quite appropriate.
Love the colours, sun and the capture, wonder if you had considered panoramic view without the foreground grass, IMO it may improve the image and give it a feel of a long fly.
bantonbuju (51815) 2005-01-02 3:15
surely a lovely shot and particularly the shape of the sun is quite interesting
roshangar (1682) 2005-01-02 5:03
such a hot shot in this days...happy new year too!

Ønsker dig også et Godt Nytår, Jeppe! Great moody picture for change of years. Nothing more needed be said on...
ricopin (563) 2005-01-02 5:18
This is a Too Great photo, Jeppe..! What a colour and seen.. you captured by the same camera with me ;)
I wanna believe the Happy New Year will just come to this world. Our each hand might be small, but we can have the power if we hold our each hand together. We can help.., yes, we can. Thank you very much, Jeppe.

Hi Jeppe, happy new year and thanks for visiting and sharing in 2004. Splendid picture here with the sun beam in it water, the two geese against the red sky are beautiful, I like the wrinkles on the water.
My compliments, John.
Kenny10pin (19301) 2005-01-02 7:29

jrj (34843) 2005-01-02 7:59
Very elegant the capture where the flying birds is a grand plus to the total impression. Good one Jeppe.

Schultzy (5446) 2005-01-02 13:46

alford (3989) 2005-01-02 19:38
Happy new year, Jeppe! You have captured a very beautiful sunset. The sun looks really huge, and those birds flying by are wonderfully positioned in your photo. The calm water and the grass in the foreground are wonderful to look at as well! rgds.
manny (21833) 2005-01-02 22:59
Happy New Year too, my friend. Nice fletting moment you've captured. The foreground grasses add depth to it.
elihesamian (26149) 2005-01-03 2:48
I appreciate it,great tribute,lovely work and an admirable shot,like a childish dreamy as a pattern for a painting,thanks a lot,Jeppe for sharing it,...Excellent and in a great way you captured it and very nicely composed,amazing nice shot.

Hi Jeppe, my best wishes to you for this new year.
Great composition and combination of this beautiful sunset with its warm tonal ranges and the flying birds that provide a link to the current events.
dsidwell (9783) 2005-01-03 11:00
Such a lovely photo, so beautiful and perhaps mournful, too. the birds are a bit oversharpened, Jeppe, and if redoing at some point, I would select everything but them and sharpen. Colors are evocative, and composition very effective!
kent_s (1911) 2005-01-04 10:22
Really a shot that would be great on top selling postcard. It's just extremely good
Very well done again Jeppe
hojper (2832) 2005-01-04 12:13
An unbelievably beautiful photo, Jeppe. Imagine that you caught these two swans exactly at the moment when the sun was setting. This is one of the most Decisive Moment photos to come along in a long time. And even therred in the foreground add a lot to the composition. I am not afraid to say it: This is one of the best I have seen on TE.
And your note suits the mood of the sad begining of this new year. TFS
Maru (0) 2005-01-04 14:00
Jeppe, your photo reminds me to all of the victims and survivors of the tragedy and the sadness of those who will not return home.
The shot is beautiful in composition and colors, the sun reflection in the lake and those birds passing through.
Have a happy new year
Galmeida (12559) 2005-01-04 19:37
Have a happy new year and thanks for your good guidelines. Nice photo for this turbulent time. Well composed and framed and so my sincerely congratulations. I continue in my third shot about funny, mouvement or curious street life! Congratulations and a good work for sharing with us.
PLD_images (7149) 2005-01-05 21:15
A superb photo Jeppe. The colors, the composition, the timing with the birds, the position of the sun, the reflections in the water, everything works so well to make this a great one.
RGatward (20086) 2005-01-06 5:09
This looks like a poster. Great timing, looks impossible, I wonder how long you had to wait.
ma-tibou (4568) 2005-01-06 5:33
Magnifique photo Jeppe un lever de soleil sur une nouvelle journée qui j'espère sera belle, de beaux détails avec ce vol d'oiseaux, bien réalisé, bravo.
sn00zie (2384) 2005-01-06 7:25

Dinyar (704) 2005-01-13 8:01
Happy New Year to you too Jeppe!!
This is a great shot with a sensitive note.
CoolDan (2516) 2005-01-20 16:41
Wow, c'est un magnifique paysage aux couleurs de feu. Très beau moment bien saisi grâce aux oiseaux. Bravo Jeppe.
IanSewell (579) 2005-01-27 12:27
A great shot, this is going straight to my favourites pile. I like the fat old sun, the blurred wheat.. wow, what a great shot. The silhouette is perfect How long did you have to wait for this?
Mishe (3533) 2005-02-05 5:31
Happy New Year Jeppe!!!
Albrecht (11281) 2005-12-06 6:36
excelent picture; marvellous timing and a great shot. Is this scanned or not?
-thanks for sharing-
schobi (187) 2005-12-06 6:36
Hi Jeppe! Wonderful picture you shot!! Best regards, Schobi
Brendon (289) 2006-01-29 4:38
Lots of sun risings and settings on TE (and yes they are a beautiful subject), but yours has a nice twist. The dark sillhouetted birds with the wisps of grass in the front are great additions to the picture. I have enjoyed this capture.
cherryripe (21033) 2006-01-29 4:52
Just saw this on the TE intro page. Amazing sunset with the silhouettes of the 2 birds. THe sun is so huge. The plant in the foreground adds depth. I like the ripples on the water.
