Three straight days of rain had me a little itchy to get outside. Fortunately the clouds not only broke today, but temperatures were nice and warm. With Murrell Park on the shore of Lake Grapevine just a five-minute drive from our house, that was the obvious candidate to try and catch a sunrise.
The Photographer's Ephemeris allowed me to scout a location in the park that would have a good view of the setting sun over the water. Once there, I started experimenting with different foregrounds.
DFW came through and I managed to get it in a shot.
I was gone and back in just an hour, which was just about the best part. To know that this sort of natural beauty is so close to where I now live is really, really gratifying -- especially after all the options I had in Colorado!
