Finally, a not so foggy Saturday sunrise that was well worth the frozen fingers and miserable cold working with the tripod and monopod.
The tree line east of Bruceville Road is perfect for capturing the budding sun as it blossoms behind silhouetted branches and flying geese. There were also a few cranes and snow geese along with the proverbial Canada geese and white-fronted.
The fog hadn't completely lifted anywhere, so Desmond Road, even though pretty empty of birds offered some spectacular sunrise art.
There were a number of sandhill cranes that had lingered after the sun was up across from the Visitor Center that gave a half-dozen fellow photographers their money's worth with the fly out.
This was my first outing with the 200-500mm lens. Lots to learn yet.
