First Morning at Bosque & Base Camp

Ah, back at the flight deck at Bosque, the glow of the promising sun just starting to glow in the east. The faint calls of the Snow Geese  are just starting to kiss the morning chill, it’s hard to beat the romance of a Bosque morning. And I have to admit that is sucked me back in for a while and I fell back on old photographic pursuits.

This movie requires Flash Player 9

But can you blame me? I mean look at that color in the water reflecting from the amazing color on the horizon. The geese flocked up it a cool shape in that color, the graphic a powerful one. That is the power of Bosque and the lure that seems to keep calling me back. Unlike prior visits here though the aperture is not closed down trying to pull in DOF but rather, I’m shooting wide open. I’m watching the background and working on making it still work for the subject without telling everything sharply. I’m loving this “retrospective” in minimum DOF and how it’s pushing me and my photography. Dang, great start to the day!
