This picture has no real artistic merit, but it is an example of being in the right place at the right time. In Manhattan, on the edge of the Upper West Side, there are paths that run along the Hudson River. Walking along there just after the sun had set, we saw a large gander "herd" his gaggle out of the water and up onto a pier. They waddled towards the end of the pier and stood looking out as if they were admiring the New Jersey skyline and the deep blue sky. We took our cue from the geese and stopped to look too.
