    Artist Statement

    On winter mornings at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico, thousands of snow geese rise en masse from their night's refuge on the water and fly off in search of food. The sound as they fly overhead is like a freight train, and the sight is unforgettable. This image attempts to capture the mix of chaos and order, color and texture, shape and movement of that brief instant.
