bob cornelison May 23, 2004

Robin, Margaret, Judy, Susan, Rick,, Pu, David and Susana thanks so much for your comments! This was one of those shots that came about by being in the right place at the right time with my camera because I had no idea I would see a crane on my walk that day. It landed up high in this tree and about 2 minutes later flew away. The shot was underexposed because it was almost dark when I saw it and the sky was a dull gray. I cropped slightly and used the gradient tool to give the background some color and then it became the shot I wanted! Here is the original. #556325
