Default Wetlands Sunrise Series

Taken about a week ago at my favorite refuge. Here is a link to the rest of the shot from that morning.

These are all beautiful, you have captured something special, something many people never witness in person. Two really stand out for their colors, numbers 3 and 4. But all are very nice.

Very spectacular colours, Steve.

I like the interest to the composition the birds add.

Each is worth hanging on the wall (#5 is my 'least preferred' - but even that is great!)

What time did you have to get up to capture these beauties? Cheers.

Paul

Thanks everyone for your comments.

Paul, I got up around 4:30am It's a 45min drive from where I live to the refuge and a group of us were meeting the refuge manager in the parking lot at 6am. It was well worth the loss of sleep. Besides, that's what afternoon naps are for.

Cheers, Steve

Here is another with the Pelicans.
Just as a point of interest. The distant range of mountains on the horizon are the Sutter Buttes. They are a small circular range of old eroded lava domes that are smack in the middle of the Sacramento Central Valley.
They are the worlds smallest range of mountains. The highest peak is around 3,500 feet/1,067meters. You can check them out by googling Sutter Buttes.

Steve,

Long time, no .... Thought about your wetland pictures just the other week. Wetlands can seem totally colourless and dull. They can also show the most vibrant life

Thank you, Steve
