Before Sunrise at Penn Commons Wetlands

November 12, 2018

A beautiful clear, crisp morning for photography!  I was up before 6 a.m. and drove to the Penn Commons wetlands near Giant Foods in Lewisburg, PA.  Temperature was 22 degrees with a heavy frost on everything.  Nippy but very still!  With no wind, it was very nice outside as long as one dressed warmly.

Here are some of my shots this morning.  All the shots were taken with my Tamron 100-400mm zoom lens on my Canon 80D digital camera.

Since the next five images were almost monotone, I converted them to Black and White using Lightroom.

Large ice crystals have formed on the surface of one of the ponds.  Some are more than a foot long!
