Essential Crane

Another crane photo taken at Bosque del Apache NWR in November. We came upon a group feeding in the farm fields at the north end of the refuge. This one was strutting around as if to say: “I am what being a crane is all about”.

Equipment: Nikon D200, Nikon 80–400 zoom lens, Bogen tripod.

Camera Settings: f11, 1/250th sec., ISO 400.

Processing: Contrast, clarity, vibrance, and  saturation adjustments in Adobe Lightroom, curves adjustments, and RAW conversion in Photoshop.
