Six Early December Wildlife Photographs

Posted on 03 December 2013

I made this set of photographs on an early December morning in California’s San Joaquin Valley. The photographs feature geese (mostly snow geese from what I could tell) and sandhill cranes, against the backdrop of late-Autumn morning light and light fog.
