Birds, Cat Tails and the Lake

Reach for the sky

It was such a pleasant and peaceful Tuesday morning down at Utah Lake. I got up and drove straight down to the water’s edge. I found a path that I had thought was blocked off by fencing, but it was not.

I spent about 30 minutes listening to the sounds of the morning.

Birds. Breeze. Beach.

This is the general area where I shot most of the pictures today

In the scene above, there were birds of many kinds flying back and forth and perching themselves on the cat tails. I probably should have shot some video. This was a very good place for birds to live and play.

Perched and watching
This little bridge was part of the trail I found. I thought it was inaccessible until today.

The shoreline of Utah Lake – note the light kissing the top of the vegetation in the water

I like the photo below. It is the first one I took today. I like it because it is peaceful but also because since the sun was rising behind me, you can see the tips of some of the vegetation being hit by the morning light.

I really liked this spot. I will come back before dawn and bring a tripod and try to get some really good bird shots. I felt like I found a secret place and it was fun to think it was all for me.

Of course when I was done shooting and backing up the car, I saw another photographer walking out of the same area. I have no idea where he was!

Perhaps then it was just for him and me. Yep. I’m going with that!
