Description

Come winter, thousands of sandhill cranes spend the night in water in and around Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge to protect themselves from predators. This shot was taken in late December right after sunset and I love this shot because of its simple tranquil beauty enhanced by the reflections and silhouettes. Looking at this, one can barely tell that the reverie of this scene would soon be broken by a spectacular swoop of cranes descending onto the waters to join these early birds for the night.
