Bream Lake (#2): Morning Light

Bream Lake Quackers

This morning I ran across a trio of ducks on the banks of Bream Lake (#2). How these  domestic  birds (the  Aylesbury’s  are  white,  the  brown  one  looks  like  a female  Mallard)  have  survived  in  a  neighborhood  full  foxes, raccoons, opossums and coyotes is a puzzle.

Young Visitor

I was drinking my morning coffee while standing at the kitchen sink, looking out the window, when this youngster trotted out of our hedge. I grabbed my camera and snapped through the glass…I knew if I tried to open the door the jig was up. One of the great pleasures of living in our neighborhood is the proximity to forests and wildlife.

Foggy Morning Over Old Lake

Yesterday we woke up to one of those magical, foggy mornings with that silvery, ephemeral light that had me grabbing for my camera and heading out. Old Lake (#1) was just starting to clear when I set up and shot this scene. ~ Shot November 5th, 2019 at 7:19am with the Light L16: ISO 200, Exposure 1/160 s, Focal Length 28mm
