One of my favorite places to go in Denver is the Rocky Mountain Arsenal. It is quiet and off the beaten path of visitors. There is a rich history behind the refuge from early settlers, to displacement for a war, German Prisoners of War, and now a wildlife refuge.
The secret to a shot like this is patience. Many times I will go to a part of the refuge and just wait. Sometimes an hour or two, or more. The chances of a "drive-by" shot like this are just about impossible.
