p.1 #1 · Sandhills Revered


Celebrating over 50 years of Bosque migrations, my buddy Brian took 2 yrs to complete this
life sized tribute to our feathered friends. The bodies were hand carved out of 100 yr old wood,
the mountain tops and river are crafted of stainless steel. It stands ~20' tall and wide, sentinels
guarding the entrance to the farm. Fitting a Sandy chose to do a fly by of approval, as I captured
these to share with y'all. The valley is filled with many such treasures, I'll be back with more. Thx

The last shot...is one of my 2012 favorites from this peaceful parcel.

What a beautiful tribute. I love the combo in #3 and the snow in the last is beautiful.

Wow, Will. The "tribute" is a great and wonderful thing, my congratulations and thanks to the artist. And speaking of artists, your winter shot at the end is a thing of beauty. You've made a lot of cameras sing, but I think maybe that D3 (do you still have it?) has sung the sweetest.

Way cool Will. You still only get them part of the year though, you know. That last image is beautiful.

Will - I'm liking all these but I especially like the flesh and blood crane checking out the iron. Real nice sculpture! I also like the snow scene. You mentioned a while back and it is a beauty!

#3 and 4 are my favorites. We are so used to seeing these birds in bright, sunny, golden brown backgrounds that this is a tour-de-force.

Thanks, Robert...sometimes it pays to be the only idiot out in a snowstorm.

Thanks very much, Nancy. Sometimes we get lucky! A "V" of Canada Geese as well as a few Snow Geese
flew over while I was shootin' the sculpture, but the lone Sandhill was the icing.

Hi Mark, thank you kindly! The old D3 goes everywhere I do these days, they'll probably bury me with it.
Happy New Year, buddy...'Hey to Jim' for me.

Hola, Karl...he did great job for sure. When the light hits it just right it almost seems alive. I'll reshoot,
but methinks it's something that will be very hard to capture.
