SkyWatch: Blackwater Dawn


Canada Geese grace the quiet waters of Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge at dawn.

I have been posting images from my Sunday visit to Maryland’s Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. This was my first visit and I was suitably impressed with the tremendous numbers of waterfowl available for viewing and photography.

The geese appear to be very content. The colour of the sky is such a lovely colour. I wonder if the geese realized their environment was so lovely when you took this shot. ;-)

Nice scene. Really like your goose flier below with the reflections. Blackwater NWR for its size can be quite productive. Blue Skies.
