Snow Geese Blast Off at Sunrise
Photo and caption by Troy Lim
It look me 4 days to capture this image. Stood in the 20'F degrees weather an hour before sunrise to wait for this moment! Friday: It was my first day in Bosque. I had an image I wanted to capture but I failed. Saturday: I captured the sunrise but not the blast off. I didn't have the correct shutter speed to freeze the Snow Geese in the frame. I failed again! Sunday: Another day of failure! Monday: Everything I was hoping for came together. The light, wind direction and the time of the blast off all fell into place. This the was the highlight of my trip.
Location: Bosque del Apache, New Mexico
