Expressive Wildlife Imagery: Arriving Early

October 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I really enjoy the early morning hours.  I will usually set my alarm at least an hour before sunrise to allow myself to get to my chosen location.  This spot happened to be a very nondescript lake in Williamsburg Virginia, but the lighting that morning was magnificent.  Cool temperatures that night allowed a blanket of mist to form over the lake, softening the reflections of the Cypress trees.


I was photographing these marvelous trees when I suddenly heard a whisper overhead.  A Cormorant was coming in for a landing.  I was fortunate to have a longer lens on the camera and captured several images as it approached the surface of the water.  Sometimes the early bird gets the worm - or at least the photograph!
