Fear and Love at Bosque del Apache
The sunrises were poetic and breathtaking. I tried, with my little digital "toy" camera to capture its essence, but I believe you really need a very expensive camera with a very large lens to completely render an image true to the experience. But, sometimes, like Mary Jean pointed out, when you are busy taking photos, you really miss the quiet, almost imperceptible movement of the sun as it makes its slow wave of pink and orange, yellow and red sweep across the tall grasses, the willows, the marsh waters, the cottonwoods still heavy with leaves that are not quite turned to gold yet. Sometimes, it's nice to just sit and watch and listen and be in that moment, as witness, as participant in the wondrous.
