I like this photo. Is it a great photo? I have no idea but I can give you a pedigree. It was shot on a day with perfect stormy skies around a small urban lake. There was really no plan other than to capture something interesting. I didn’t think about why the geese were flying north in August; simply aim and shoot. Afterward I would appreciate the fact the birds were clear of the trees in this shot and their randomness made a pleasing wave across the sky. Shoot with purpose even if you don’t fully know what that purpose is at the moment.
