I have been wanting to get some sunrise pictures from the Palencia Boardwalk where the trees do not block the view. Yesterday, I set the alarm and woke up in the dark but it did not seem promising. I went back to bed and shortly after it was clear that is was, in fact, promising but was too far to go to my regular spot for a sunrise picture. Regis took the above picture from our house with a cell phone.
I tried today at the Boardwalk and it was the most boring sunrise in whenever. But, I got some pictures of a clapper rail that seems to hang out in one location and a marsh wren. Marsh wrens hide in the grasses and flit around and are very difficult to photograph. I also saw some deer today.
