The Cry of The Wild Goose by 

There are a couple of lines from an old Frankie Laine song that are the inspiration for this image:-
“Tonight I heard the Wild Goose Cry
Wingin’ north in the lonely sky”
They conjured up this image in my mind so I took a photo of some Pink Footed Geese coming in to land on the local mere and transported them to a lonely Loch in the north of Scotland. I added a few textures and edited everything in Topaz and CS3.
“My heart knows what The Wild Goose knows,
and I must go where the Wild Goose goes.”
