Color on the Platte River

This post is being re-published from the spring of 2012. I am currently involved with a unique photography project that will take me 1-2 weeks. During this time, I will likely be on social media very little. I have set up a few posts to “self-publish” to my website blog; if/when time allows, I will try to post these to Twitter and Facebook, also, just depends on my available time.

I decided to re-post today’s post as I’m currently considering another trip to the Platte River this spring, to photograph the migrating sandhill cranes, along with some camping.

The Platte River trip started out slowly, with rain sporadically hindering us. But as the week progressed, we began receiving beautiful weather and some awesome sunrises and sunsets. In today’s post, I am sharing some images of the Sandhill Cranes (Grus canadensis) as they return to the Platte River for roosting … and in one of those awesome sunsets!
