I was familiar with photographing wildlife refuges from previous trips to refuges in Oregon and New Mexico. Now, I’m not necessarily a “wildlife” photographer but if a hundred thousand snow geese are going to perform in front of my camera, I’m going to be clicking!
The delightful surprise was the amazing landscape shots I got while also shooting the “blast off” of birds in the area at sunrise.
As you can see, the refuge offers a great variety of image possibilities for both the wildlife photographer and the landscape photographer. We saw dozens of types of waterfowl and birds on our trip, and I think the area offers year round landscape possibilities. I see this as a tremendous workshop location in the future.
