Great photos, Kevin.  I am not a goose expert but from what I can see I lean towards a pink-footed goose.  It is hard to see a lot of the legs but they appear to be pink rather than orange.  The smallish beak points towards a pink-footed and, again, the small band at the tip appears pink rather than orange.  The white tail tip is quite broad, which is right and the angle the photo is taken from probably makes the white rear look a little larger than it would in profile.  I hope this helps.
