Misty morning

I love how fresh everything is on a morning when the sun is rising and there is mist and sunrays.

Two of the photographers I walked with.

Sunrise at Birdsland Reserve

I’m trying to make sure I get exercise every day and a good way to do that is to go for a walk at the local reserve that has a lake. It’s just over 5km round walk from the outer carpark. The morning looked promising and I thought I’d get there before the sun reached over the hill.  I was rewarded.  Shown in the order it happened. I love cool crisp mornings like this one, with the mist rising off the water.  It’s quite beautiful, don’t you think?

Mist at the Lake

It really was very misty on Monday morning. Here are some more shots of my walk at Birdsland Reserve.

I think this one is my favourite shot.

Mist at the park

A Darterbird holds out its wings in the hope of drying them in the sun.

And this duck is bathed in sunlight as the mist swirls.

Before the sunrise

Thought I’d share with you a few shots taken before the spectacular sunrise I posted yesterday, taken at Kallista here in Victoria, Australia.

Sunrise at Ridge Road, Kallista

It felt like the whole world was still asleep and I was the only one there to witness it.

As the sun rises

The building on the dam wall provides a great opportunity for watching the sun rise and seeing it bathed in gold once the sun has reached over the tree tops in the background.
