Bosque del Apache…It’s A Wrap

What a week! We have had anything from bright sunny days where the temps soar into the high sixties to beautiful, partly cloudy days that extend our shooting time with good light. We experienced a wind storm with sustained winds of forty miles per hour and gusts to sixty that blew dust and birds around like confetti and nearly knocked us to the ground at times. And on our final day, the predicted severe winter storm that was predicted arrived with the return of the geese and cranes to the ponds to roost.

The bird count is higher than I can remember (at last count there were 56,000+ light geese and 14,000+ cranes) and the photo opportunities equally good. Once again a great group of fellow adventures joined me and we all had an amazing week of cmraderie, excellent food and great shooting. Enjoy a few final images from the week…

As the sun sets on yet another Excellent Photo Adventure at Bosque del Apache, I am already looking forward to next year…
