Can you imagine being without Internet during three weeks ? I hope it's the last time it happened to me! I'm sure I missed a lot of great photos, isn't it the best time for photographers with the last bright colors of autumn and the magical touch of the first snow ?

2 Million (MikeSFArea)
Recent counts at the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge state that there are over 2 million geese and ducks. Later this day, I saw a mass fly-out of over 1 million snow geese heading out for their nightly feeding at dusk. It was quite a sight.

Fox, Alaska (alaskajuliens)
This photo was taken in Fox, Alaska roughly 25 miles NE of Fairbanks. I am shooting north towards the Aurora ski lodge and the University Of Alaska's Poker Flats Research Center. In the middle of the photo you can see their laser shooting straight up into the sky. A little after this shot was taken I could hear the snapping of branches and I turned around and there was a huge bull moose not 10' away from me. He was as startled as I was. I made a very quick exit. I didn't know I could run so fast in the snow. I'm 6' 4" and my head wasn't even to his shoulders. I had to look up to see his face.

Thank you for collecting suction a beautiful selection. And thank you to all of the photographers who share their work.

Makes me wish I lived somewhere I could see more snow than what we get here in the Willamette Valley.

Thanks for including my "Snowy Valley"! I appreciate your support.
A mutual friend here on WU told me to look for it here. I'm glad to see you chose several of my recent favorites for your blog picks this month.
