I have been busy putting together a video of my fishing trip to Alaska and neglecting getting out for new images. With our snow under threat from warming temperatures, I knew I needed to get out before it was gone. I discovered this creek about a mile from our home in January. Thanks to limits on developers the huge project surrounding this creek had not turned it into a concrete drainage ditch as it would have been 30 years ago. You would never guess that within 100 feet of this creek hundreds of homes are being constructed. A little research told me that the creek would be pretty much aligned with the sun this morning and I made my way to the banks about a half hour before sunrise. I have a shot after the sun came up but I liked the color from the cloud reflections in the water in this shot. Nikon D300 with Nikkor 17-55mm@ 28mm, F22, ISO 200, 5 shot HDR +/- 2 ev from 1/3 s. HDR processed in Photomatix Pro 5.

I would title this, "The Morning Awakens." What a beautiful scene!

Stunning photo with the colors and the reflection off the water. The colors are such a nice contrast with the dark of the season and the white of the snow.
