When I arrived at Bear river it was still dark and I had to wait for sunrise for almost an hour. I miscalculated the time when the sun would rise and found myself in the odd situation of not knowing what to do. Should I have a nap in my car and wait for sunrise or walk? I chose to walk.
Walking in the dark desert was a very odd and powerful experience. The moment I got out of my car I found myself in a very noisy environment. Birds were singing everywhere, the desert was slowly awaking from the sleep and the sky was getting patches of light colors. I walked and didn't feel fear at all, just tried to feel the desert.
When I returned back to my car the sky was getting lighter. At some moment I was startled by an odd mourning voice. I looked around and saw a cow in the tall grass across the road. Was she lonely? Or she didn't like my presence? I want to believe that she was lonely.
I took these and other photographs listening to a lonely cow a long cry. Sometimes she stopped and I was grateful for this little break.
At first I was scared that a cow would charge to my car but later I stopped paying attention to her. We shared one space and we were not alone.
Soon geese started to leave their night roost heading South and I forgot about everything. They were so beautiful!
