ABOUT THE WORK
It was early morning in the spring outside of Arlington Oregon. I was waiting to photograph a train in motion coming down the Colombia River headed back to Seattle. I looked down and there was an undisturbed nest of Chukar eggs, it seemed like aa eye in a field of tall grasses. A welcome surprise.
