Dr Marm never without my Nikon!

Sunrise

Not my best ever moments today for photography.  50mm lens didn’t work and I lost a lens cap–still have the “leash” dangling from my lens.  Good news is that I won’t have to buy another leash:)  No complaints though, I’ll do it again in a heartbeat! 

For my next trek I am bringing my D40x.  I kept the D300s on my tripod, but missed a lot of great bird moments.  Saw 3 Snowy Egrets, 1 Blue Heron, and many Canadian Geese and ducks. With another camera I’ll be able to capture them while waiting for the sun to rise.  Gotta love the learning process! 

Reached the river just as the magic hour was closing.

There were no gorgeous colors in the sky today, just a peaceful rising of the sun behind clouds. 

Sun rose behind clouds without much fanfare

Still humbling with the beauty and quiet arrival of morning.

    • Thanks so much! Not what I expected when I got up at 4:44a.m, but sometimes the unexpected is even better:) Appreciate you taking time to view and comment.
