Expressive Wildlife Imagery: Arriving Early
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!
