Sandhill Cranes in the Smoke

    Beautiful of course. Where?

  3. It’s like choreography for a sandhill crane dance!

    I like your spirit, Cindy, in utilizing the smoky background to embrace the cranes in a surreal way. I really like how you’ve eased these wonderful crane photos into a sort of impressionistic painting. We have many smoky days here in Calif. lately, too, and there isn’t much one can do but hope all the beings find safety and that it ends soon. I wish you the best….
