Title: Video I did from Pics at the Wichita Mountains
Post by: ambersdad on March 12, 2016, 08:23:58 AM
I did a little video a few weeks back for a presentation to highlight the Refuge, wildlife, hiking, volunteerism and giving back to things you have a passion for. Click the HD version once it starts.  I'm not a video wiz like a few of you here, Just a good old boy with a wore out camera.  ;)

Each photo stays up for 10 seconds so I could talk while it was running.

Awesome! How close were you to that rattler? My experience of Oklahoma is limited to very brief stays in Tulsa and okc, so it boggles my mind to see shots like those coming out of the same state

The lens I was using for the rattler shots won't focus inside 6 feet, so I HAD to be 6 feet away.  Oklahoma is more diverse than most people think.  It has desert sand, mesa's, mountains, and swamps.

The terrain reminds me very much of the Enchanted Rock area here in Central Texas.

I just pulled up their website. There are similarities.  The Refuge looks to be much larger (59,020 acres, but only about 22,400 for public use) with a lot more terrain to wonder around on.

Enchanted Rock and the Wichita Mountains are made up of the same granite.
