Photography musings from the American Southwest -
Drama on the Guadalupe River
Wednesday, May 5, 2010
Late evening roost over the Guadalupe River, a pair of turkey buzzards rest. The entire Guadalupe River valley is covered with black vultures and turkey buzzards right now. The recent flash flood killed a lot of animals along the river's path.....the vultures are roosting over the bodies. Below this scene, another dead animal lays along the banks of the river.
I live in the western region of the Edwards Plateau, deep in the Texas Hill Country. I'm an avid outdoorsman spending a large portion of my time "out there" roaming the wide open spaces. Much of my photography is simply an extension of a very active outdoor lifestyle.
The challenges posed with closing the distance, pursuing wildlife photography, is an absolute hoot for me! The experience out there alone is everything to me. If I capture pixels along the way , it's icing on the cake.
