moments in focus…

six:thirteen AM

As I opened my eyes this morning I could see the sun beginning to rise, even though I was not ready to rise myself I did! I knew if I did not move fast I would miss the beautiful colors that are only visible in the early morning. I threw on some shorts, grabbed my camera and tripod, and set out to the lake. The colors changing as I walked, our world is pretty incredible.

  4. Wow, what a view to wake up to… Stunning… Sunsets are my favoured shots, but only because I’m too much of bed bug to drag myself up early enough… lol..

  5. Lovely image and nice to see water in Lake Travis again. Hope it stays that way but then in Texas you never know.

    • Thanks to all for the nice comments.

      And Paul, yes it is nice to see water in the lake. It was so low these past few summers (actually all of 2009 it seems). We have had lots of rain this summer and it’s still high (but dropping slightly).
