Image of the Month



December 2013




In December 2012, I was fortunate enough to go to Bosque del Apache in New Mexico to watch and photograph the extraordinary sight and sounds of the thousands of snow geese and sand hill cranes.  The dawns were utterly spectacular as the flocks of snow geese flew in one after the other and landed in the pools.  They were silhouetted against the oranges and reds of the glowing sky.  After a little while for a rest, a drink and some preening of ruffled feathers, they took off almost all at once, in extraordinary numbers.  I will never forget this.

And to end this year, I have put together a brief slide show with some of my favourite images.  I hope you like them.  I am looking forward to 2014 and all the photographic opportunities that will arise.  I am going to Scotland, Norway, and Finland and I've got a number of adventures planned for myself and my trusty Canon camera in the UK.

and finally, a big thank you to Nigel, Ian, Danny, Cathy, Liz, David C, David F, Guy and Sunny for their support and friendship.  

Happy New Year everybody :-)
