2020—Sunset Color

The colors at sunrise and sunset in Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge are nothing short of spectacular. The intensity of the reds and oranges reflected onto the ponds and filling the skies is gorgeous. Many of my favorite images from my December visit to Bosque were silhouettes of birds in the sky or on the water with the intense colors surrounding them like this one, as a family of Sandhill Cranes prepares to roost for the night.
