The Beauty of Bosque

I'm back from the blue skies of New Mexico to the drab of London. The first two weeks were spent photographing Sandhill Cranes, Snow Geese, Ross's Geese and other species from dawn till dusk (rest on Christmas day) at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge on the Rio Grande south of Socorro, followed by another week touring around the state, sightseeing, birding and trying Green Chili Cheese Burgers! I've started a slideshow/gallery of Bosque del Apache, for photographs made in the landscape/horizontal format at the link below on my main bird photography site - more will be added in the coming days along with a gallery/slideshow in the portrait/vertical format. I'll also post some stories and notes shortly.

Hi Bill, thanks for your very kind comments. You're very lucky to live close to such a fantastic area. Thanks also for your informative website (www.bosquebill.com) which I came across last year while planning the trip.

Thanks Nicole. The second is my favourite too, and a shot I had really hoped to get.
