This photo was made while I was standing at the crane pools. My tour group was facing the crane pools waiting for the cranes to begin to take off through the sunrise color. As is my typical practice, I took a look over my shoulder and saw the sun rising in a field of clouds that were golden in color. I advised my group to look both ways, but I am not sure anyone got this image but me. It was partly just luck. I noticed a few cranes flying through the scene and was fortunate to capture this moment.
Let’s face it. The world has become an ugly place. People are divided by just about everything. Tribalism has run amok. Some people seem so committed to their tribe that nothing else matters. Multiply all that by 10 if you spend any time in the online photography forums. It’s bound to make some of you unhappy. Believe it or not, this very negatively impacts your photography.
