Deer On The Plains Great Colorado Sand Dunes

Deer on the Plains Great Colorado Sand Dunes

 

A heard of deer grazing on the springtime plains of the Colorado Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.

Wildlife of the park and preserve includes pikas, bighorn sheep, black bears, mountain lions, beavers, badgers, bison, pronghorn, birds such as ptarmigan, peregrine falcons, owls, eagles, and herons, and reptiles such as lizards and snakes. Fish encountered in the park’s streams include the Rio Grande cutthroat trout and suckers. Insects such as beetles are common as well.

The park contains the tallest sand dunes in North America, rising about 750 feet (230 m) from the floor of the San Luis Valley on the western base of the Sangre de Cristo Range, covering about 19,000 acres (7,700 ha). Researchers say that the dunes started forming less than 440,000 years ago.

The dunes were formed from sand and soil deposits of the Rio Grande and its tributaries, flowing through the San Luis Valley. Over the ages, glaciers feeding the river and the vast lake that existed upon the valley melted, and the waters evaporated. Westerly winds picked up sand particles from the lake and river flood plain. As the wind lost power before crossing the Sangre de Cristo Range, the sand was deposited on the east edge of the valley. This process continues, and the dunes are slowly growing. The wind changes the shape of the dunes daily.  Source: wiki

We Have Front Row Seats for the Thunderstorm

Front Row Seat for the Storm

 

 

It is almost like these trees have a front row seat watching this storm as lightning strikes and dances in front of them during this beautiful Colorado thunderstorm on the country plains. A very active night that got me out of bed and out the door to this location.  It is so nice when a plan comes together, as from my bedroom window I could see it hitting up in this area.

 

So off I went and when I got here, the set up was two cameras,  one shooting in this direction Northeast and the other 100 feet apart shooting Southwest towards a barn and silo.  Really got my exercise on this as I would have to run back and forth between the two cameras hitting the shutters.  When one was done the other would go.  Had 30 seconds exposures to do this.  Finally the lightning in the Northeast stopped and I got both cameras together to the barn, one shooting wide angle and the other closer in.  This is in Southwest Weld County, Colorado.
