Wow! An unbelievably good photo Majsujan. That is such a powerful image with the herons (like little old men) hunched up in the snow. It works really well as a colour composition and in itโ€™s form too. One of my favorite images of the Gallery.

You deserve a lot of accolade for this. ๐Ÿ™‚

Giants indeed!!

Such lovely detail you've captured in this picture Majsujan, with their feathers and the snow flakes too.

A fantastic picture my friend. Very well done.
