On Saturday I joined friends Michael, Donna, and Susan on a much-anticipated trip to Blue Cypress Lake. The lake is a prime location for nesting Ospreys. I will post more on the trip and birds tomorrow – but for today, here are some teaser sunrise shots. :)
The clouds added some interesting features to the sky as the sun peeked over the trees on the horizon. The reflection in the lake water was beautiful! I was so excited when the driver moved the boat between these two cypress trees, which completed the sunrise shot. :)

I love the composition with the two trees. I was so focused on the front of the boat that I missed opportunities for tree silhouettes. I’m going to pay more attention to that in May…although I think the sun will be well up before we head out. Next year!
