…morning light is magic…

Brazos Bend at Sunrise

Made another road trip to Brazos Bend State Park last weekend.  Not much happening there but still a good time to get out.  Tried sitting down on the bank with the tripod and was able to get the Grebe with wings spread

  1. Nice job using spot metering in this backlit setting. Most people don’t know how hard it is to catch a Grebe with the wings spread out. Great capture of that moment.

    Love the snowy with the glow and soft background.
