This past Sunday was the first time in nearly three months that I left the house with my camera. THREE MONTHS!! That's how much I enjoyed going through my shots from our July trip through Arizona and Utah. I didn't need to get any new ones to scratch my photo itch. But alas, the images eventually ran out and I was forced to seek new ones. So off I went to White Rock Lake, in search of a sunrise and birds.
Coots eventually started gathering, which gave me an excuse to switch to a landscape orientation to include them in the scene. I wasn't about to lose that anchor point, though.
pelicans stayed a good distance out. Another photographer told me that several years ago they used to hang out much closer to shore, but the logs on which they perched had been removed. Bummer.
Not what I'd hoped for, but not a complete shutout either. So I choose to see this glass as half full and call it a win!
