Migration

When I was creating this piece earlier this morning, I was wishing I'd taken more photos of flocks of geese when I was at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge last month. I love using those photos in my montages. I then walked across the road to get the newspaper, looked up, and there was a skein of 13 big geese flying right toward me, right overhead, in perfect formation. Low and slow. And I with no camera. Sigh. It was a beautiful moment anyway.

And this photomontage? It's composed of a tree I photographed in the fog in Eugene, Oregon, some metal I shot near the docks in Newport, Oregon, and geese from the Sacramento NWR. ©Carol Leigh
