Sundog at Dawn

Post by minniev » Fri Jan 26, 2018 4:17 pm

Not a spectacular landscape, but one of my morning hangouts, the Turcotte lab owned by the Wildlife and Fisheries folks. Was pleased to catch a sundog, a real rarity in Mississippi, and its reflection amidst the ducks was a bonus.

Sundog -- new word for me. Thanks.

This invites quiet contemplation, Minnie, and a few silent words of thanks. A place for just being present and alone. Grand. Matt

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

It looked like some kind of custard dessert. I wondered about trying to remove the fish hook shaped contrail.

I see sun dogs fairly often when visiting in northern areas but they are uncommon down here. The location is better for birding than for photography but I enjoy being there. There’s never anyone else around.

A very, very gentle scene I find greatly appealing. Yeah, I'd try to "mitigate" the contrail a bit :)

Re sun dogs: I followed a gorgeous, strong one a couple of weeks ago, and when I pulled over to take the first pic, I had to laugh out loud: removing my polarizing sunglasses from my face nearly removed the sun dog entirely from the sky :)

Thanks. I went on and removed the weird contrail, it was easy and it looks better.

Such a beautiful spot, I can see why the hawk was there! S-
