Early morning at Middle Creek found a flock of Ring-necked Ducks hanging out on a pond near the visitor's center. This photo and the following one was taken as the first warm rays of the rising sun fell across the water.
Light levels were still quite low. The first shot was made set on ISO 640 and the second at ISO 1000.
Three hours later with the sun higher in the sky I shot this image at ISO125. With the stronger light I captured better detail but lost much of the visual appeal that comes with the warm low angle light of dawn.
