This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Just An Illusion.
It’s a composite of two images, a large setting sun and Sandhill Cranes flying to roost at sunset. I spent quite a lot of time each autumn that I lived in Saskatchewan, Canada trying to get a shot like this on a single frame of film.
This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge: Radiant.

My contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Illumination.
A photo of the setting sun taken with a telephoto. I had a couple of teleconverters stacked behind the lens to make the sun as large as possible in the frame. The specks around the sun are very distant wildfowl. I was hoping for a large V of Sandhill Cranes to cross the sun but they wouldn’t cooperate.
One from the archives taken in early autumn when the wildfowl and Sandhill Cranes are gathering up ready to head south for the winter. Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s.
