This was looking upstream.
The birds appeared out of nowhere - thus they are called Ghost birds. Very cool stuff to watch.

The sun has already gone down. We were loosing light fast and the cranes decided to come to the river. I grabbed my fastest lens - the 50 1.4 - pushed up the ISO and fired away.
This is the result.

If you can - go the Smoky Mts. in the fall. The weather is great. The leaves are changing and the mountains are alive.

A few weeks ago I headed out to catch the end of the snow geese stop in the rainwater basin. It took me almost all day to find them. The weather was cold and nasty out. I had never seen them on this pond before.
So I got out of car and stood at the fence line and waited. I knew from past experience that it was a matter of time before these geese would get restless. So I focused on the front group and just as the back group began their lift off I hit the hammer. Fun stuff.

So we drove like crazy to the next spot - nothing. Light was fading and I was getting desperate. All of a sudden I spotted this tree and thought it might be at least something. So parked the car in a pull off - one of the only safe places on this stretch of the road. Set up the tripod and hoped birds would fly over the top of it.
I was pleased.

The light was beautiful and these silos were lighting up. Loved the colors and texture.
I am going to have to make another trip out there. An old bar that screams - take my picture.
