84/265: Monoclouds


It was a toss-up between the best picture, and the most representative picture.

We made a pilgrimage out to Jamaica Bay National Wildlife Refuge today. It's hard to believe that Jamaica Bay is in Queens, and that when you look just right, you can see Manhattan off in the distance. It's the very start of the spring migration, and although we didn't see any of the warblers or wading birds that are usually around in the spring, there was a huge flock of snow geese and some other cool birds like a green winged teal and this bird that we can't identify (so I put it in the "Bird Identification Help Guide" on Flickr).

This is a beautiful shot of the sky, very dramatic.

I thought the title was "Moonclouds" at first, which made a sort of sense given the look of that sky, but I was still puzzled. Now that I see the title is actually "Monoclouds" though ... I'm still puzzled.

Because they're clouds, and they're monochromatic.

That is one amazing sky. Wish I could have seen it in person!

It's amazing to me how close you can be to nature at the same time as being close to the city. I never knew about that in relation to NYC until your photos.
