With bright stars and clear skies when I woke up this morning, I headed out to get some sunrise shots. Although clear skies never yield as dramatic sunrise shots as when there are some clouds to add contrast to the scene, this morning’s presunrise colors were fairly intense and produced some decent shots.
After the sun broke the horizon, the dogs and I headed down to the point in Lamar to await the whooping cranes flying in.
Jenny and Sam did their part in searching out whoopers. Actually, in the dim first light of the day, they do serve an actual purpose, I can shoot them, since they are white, to get a good exposure for the cranes when they come in, sort of a white grey card, if you will.
Along the shore when returning home, I ran into some royal terns and a little sanderling.
