A cold spring morning, a dark background and a favorable sun angle combine to highlight the breath of this pacific loon as it calls to its mate. This is one of my all time favorite images- I use it as a screen saver on my computer.

I love the outdoors and the beauty in nature. Hopefully my images capture that beauty.

    Thanks Nicole. I grew up in Minnesota so I love the call of the common loon too. The Pacific loon’s call isn’t nearly as beautiful, but they are still as pretty.

    Amazing capture! The dim light, the slightly rippled reflection, the bit of breath from the loon… all gorgeous ; )
