One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—Bosque Sunrise 2017

It was 13° at 5:30 AM Monday morning when we arrived at Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge to photograph the morning blastoff.  There were some wispy clouds and pink sky as the sun rose.  We soon heard the distant din of geese blasting off from their nighttime roost on the farm ponds at Bosque.  We were quite a ways away from the blastoff so we saw silhouettes of the birds as they flew through the morning sunrise off to their feeding grounds.  A few minutes later, the din quieted and the birds disappeared.    I took the first photograph with the Nikon D5 and 600mm lens; the second with the Nikon D500 and 18-35mm lens.
