Cranes in the Rain
Comments: 0 Comments •
During the "magic hour" of late-afternoon light, a small flock of sandhill cranes and countless raindrops, near and far, imparted an oil-painting-like texture to the wondrous scene along the back side of a band of rain. These and another 460,000 of their closest friends and relatives converge annually upon the Platte River Valley of central Nebraska -- one of the world's great bird-migration spectacles. I did not move the saturation bar even in the slightest; the rainbow really was this intense in a deep zoom!
