Dawn on the Bay

It has been hot and dry in the Pacific Northwest, as you may have heard (or experienced). And we’ve had some great sunrises and sunsets. So when I woke up this morning before 6am, I grabbed my little mirrorless camera and a couple lenses, and zipped down to the bay for a dawn walk. The sunrise color wasn’t terribly dramatic, but I still found some things to occupy my lens, including quite a few herons. A few highlights for you…
