Music | Migrating North: Austin’s Shearwater spread their wings.

By Ryan Bradford
POSTED // Aug 27,2008 - It’s often difficult to capture nature through a camera lens—no matter how good the footage is, it’s never a completely accurate representation of real life. Audio becomes muddled, the contrast is always a little too overblown and animals/people...
