With the moon setting about 1/2 hour before sunrise, I arrived at the Preserve just at the right time to experience it reflecting off the water. It was pretty cold, though and pitch dark. It had been cloudy during the night so I couldn't see the moon when looking outside, but about 4:00 or so, the clouds waved goodbye and I knew what shots I'd try to get first.
Just before sunrise, a pretty decent cloud array looked hopeful for some strong color, but most it dissipated as the light shone on them. That's the name of the game. You don't know what Providence is going to deal you. I'm happy just to be able to get out and capture a few images!
