Rowe Sanctuary Sunset over the Platte River
I made this photo from inside one of the overnight photography blinds at the Rowe Sanctuary. To celebrate the 1st anniversary of our wedding Jessica and I reserved a night in the blind for March 20th. These blinds are fantastic, they get you right up close to the birds so you can witness firsthand one of nature's greatest spectacles. The photo was made just as the bird activity was starting to intensify. The "V" of cranes that you can see in the sky was one of the first groups of birds to fly over. The show that followed was a mind-blowing experience of sight and sound. At one point almost every inch of the sky was filled with circling cranes as they prepared to land on the river.
