Canada Geese at Ten Below
Photo and caption by JoAnn Lambertz
This photo was taken on a very cold winter day near my home west of Yankton, SD. I often go out to Gavins Point Dam and Lewis and Clark to take photos of the abundant wildlife, but I really love being out there in the winter. In the cold weather fewer people venture out and I find the solitude a peaceful respite from my day job in retail. I was hoping to photograph these geese for about an hour until another photographer trudged down the river bank, tripod in hand and scared them off. This is my favorite of the day and each time I look at it I am transported to that beautiful, peaceful place.
