I decided that if I'm going to do sunrise photos, I'd like to do them at a fairly reasonable hour, summer hours will make getting up just a little tougher than it is right now. I was on the road about 5:30ish without a real goal in mind. I really wanted to head downtown for the cherry blossoms but didn't want to get in the middle of the rush hour traffic and so I headed to Huntley Meadows. I was there well before sunrise, in fact, I don't think it was supposed to be open but I was not the first one to set up a tripod. The sunrise was kind of meh but the park was really gorgeous. Although the water level is low, the sense of spring and growing is everywhere and the vocal birds especially let me know that they were frisky and into this time of year. Although I came for landscapes, I spent much of my time with this heron who was quite patient with me. A good morning...now for a nap.
