Congratulations to gdanmitchell for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 15 votes - View Previous Winners


From late autumn though the end of winter I spend a lot of time photographing migratory birds in California's Great Central Valley. While I do some of the usual bird-filling-the-frame shots, I'm more interested in photographing the birds as part of the winter landscape here — so some of the photographs are less "wildlife photography" and more "landscapes with birds." (A buddy and I actually did a "birdscapes" exhibit a few years back featuring some of this stuff.)

Here are a few from the past month or so...







"Geese Before Sunrise"






"First Light, Winter Wetlands"






"Winter Geese, Wetlands Dawn"






"Snow Geese, Wetlands Pond"






"Cranes, First Light"






"Bird-Filled Sky"

And when it is too foggy to see the birds at all...





"Dormant Trees and Fog"


Dan

Lovely work Dan. I like these a lot. There is a lot of depth in several of these images, with the layering of the landscape and the birds and the sky. A most excellent set of work

Beautiful skies with lots of atmospheric conditions combine to create some really nice images, Dan! Always excellent work! The first and last images are my favorites. The black and white treatment on the last image is gorgeous!!!

Best regards, David

Another Great set Dan! Just got back from my own Sandhill Crane trip here in Nebraska. We had over 650,000 cranes in central Nebraska last week.

"Cranes, First Light" in particular hits both genres -- landscape and wildlife -- equally well at the same time. The earlier comment about layering was right on, too. I'm inspired.

I love the "birdscape" shots, but the trees in the fog is my favorite of the set.

Beautiful work Dan! The landscape environment combined with the birds make for a visually interesting composition. It really creates a wonderful perspective.

I always enjoy your amazing images with subtle colors and nice mood. Great work
It seems you did not tell the snow geese where the camera was . I hate when they do this. You cannot bribe them to swim to you like pond ducks in city parks.

Thanks to you and jcw1982.

And yes, the geese are not very good at taking directions!

I really like these Dan. As a biologist and a photog, I really enjoy seeing wildlife in its environment presented as artistically as you have done here. "Birdscapes" is a great description. Thanks for sharing these!

Thanks for the comment and for sharing my interest in the environments where we find wildlife.

Hi Dan,

Gorgeous stuff and some amazing numbers of snow geese. I love the bands of color and texture in the first yet "Dormant Trees and Fog" is simply amazing.
