Contemplative Photography — For the Love of Birds

Contemplative photography combined with nature photography can be deeply soul-soothing, educational, and plays an important part in conservation.  It gives details about the appearance or behavior of birds and has resulted in the protection of landscapes and species. This presentation on February 10th, at 6 pm celebrates the power of photography and our love for birds.  Kirk Gooding selected some of his favorite nature photos and created this series set to music. This online event is free to say thank you for your support of the Klamath Bird Observatory.
