One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—Yin And Yang

There is really no way to describe the breathtaking sight of thousands of Snow Geese taking flight from one of the ponds at Bosque del Apache.    I brought a shotgun microphone with me and my plan was to capture this spectacle on video with the cacophony of sound that accompanies this explosion of white birds.  I was unable to do it this trip but when I go back next year, I will try again.  On the surface it is chaotic but at the same time there is a harmony to the sight.  Sometimes, it is so overwhelming that you just gape in awe and forget to trigger the shutter release.  This is one of nature’s true yin and yang moments…chaotic and controlled at the same time; harmony and cacophony playing off one another.
