Blessed with a beautiful sunrise after a record snow storm (7F that morning), we had a window of a few minutes when the first ray of golden sunlight shined thru the morning mist, with the cranes starting to take off at the perfect moment. The first morning the cranes slept thru these few minutes of golden light, the second morning, same thing, and the third morning, we finally had the take off. The fourth day, another snow storm came and we had to leave the refuge. Bosque Del Apache, Dec 2011, with Shootthelight workshop.
