Malcom, I truly enjoy this image, lovely scenery. Looking at the details of this image in the galleries I see it was taken in the Whitewater Wildlife Preserve, Arizona using a D810. Seems to be a lovely place to shoot for birders and I can imagine that more than a few other Nikonians might be interested going there. Feel free to start a discussion on a potential get-together at this location in the Nikonians Trips Forum

Nice treatment. Reminiscent of how photos looked over 100 years ago.

Thank you both for your comments. Per bgs's suggestion, I started a discussion on the Nikonians Trips Forum. Very timely as the migration starts in October through February. I agree with RexRay's comment as well. This was an unusual Arizona morning and I did not have high expectations. Apologize for the delayed response. I was on a Teton trip where I saw a few Sandhill Cranes along the Snake River - perhaps a few of these guys on their way south.

I keep looking at this photo and seeing more. The post process is perfect. In color, it would just have been a good nature photo. As presented, it is super.

Thank you, Art. I'm an Engineer so the Science of Photography comes naturally. The Art is a work in progress. On this particular day, the light was quite different so I'll attribute the results to luck more than skill. And I'll never give pass up an opportunity when one might expect less than great results.
