THE REFUGE IN MOTION

Some really wonderful photographs have been taken on the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. You can see every barb on the feathers of birds in many pictures.

I take my camera every time I go to the refuge (Rule #1 of refuge visiting: Always take your camera and your binoculars. If you don’t you’ll be sorry.) Mostly I take stills that are adequate for the purposes of this blog if not for display alongside more professional-style work.

Sometimes, however, there are qualities of the refuge I notice that compel me to turn on the video function. When I see trees or grass blowing in the wind or clouds scooting across the sky I want to capture the motion I experience when taking it all in. A few seconds of a bird twitching around says something about its nature I can’t capture in a single photo.

So this brief little video is a few of the little clips I’ve taken strung together. See what you think.
