Weekly Photo Challenge: Let there be light! (2)


I couldn’t let this challenge go by with only an artificial light example.  This one is all about the best light source we all use – always changing, always challenging, and always creating interest – the sun.  It also highlights the golden hour surrounding sunset – in this case at the Bosque Del Apache in New Mexico.  Since my previous post for this challenge featured a silhouette, I thought I’d use another silhouette, this time a Sandhill Crane coming in for a landing, against the sunset sky.  I think this photo also goes well with Thanksgiving – how can you not be thankful to see something like this?

    • Thanks Anna – they do look ungainly when in their approach – then they do this delicate ballet like move as they land. Cool birds!
