05 Mar 14. I mentioned quite a while back in 2013 that we spent one day visiting Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Reserve in between our three days of touring Yellowstone. The morning was a very foggy one and I had hopes of some wonderful shooting of the many different birds species that were supposedly abundant this time of the year. On the day of our visit the birds apparently hadn't read the script and we saw very few birds at all, and those which we did see were at a distance from our access points that they were nothing but dots in my images. With a lens of perhaps 4x the focal length I had available, I might have been able to capture something usable, but then for that cost I could also have had a new vehicle! So I made do attempting to capture some of the fall scenery, such as it was, as we were about a week to 10 days too early. Had we been there when the colors were prime, we likely wouldn't have been able to visit anyway with the park closures that occurred at that time. In lieu of the colors I had come to shoot, we were instead treated to some absolutely delightful cloud formations, so I did my best to capture the drama in the sky accenting the colors that were available.
