I have been trying the last two seasons to get over to Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area to photograph the migration of Sandhill Cranes. JPFW is only 2:45 from my home. The weather has been gray, and I haven’t seen a blue sky in 4 weeks. What the heck I set out this morning at 3:00 AM to be there at daybreak when the Cranes are most active. I got there, no people and no cranes. They had moved about 9 miles North West up near a large power plant. Once I found them the fog had rolled in, then light snow. I have tried to photograph American Bald Eagles in bad atmospheric conditions, you would think I would have known better and stayed in bed and saved my gas. Fog, mist, “heavy air” all make for low contrast and tough photos!
Can’t hit a home run every trip! Sandhills done, bring on my beloved Eagles!
