I like to photograph wildlife in very low light. From the scowls I sometimes receive, if not outright condescending remarks, from other photographers I realize this is not everyone’s cup of tea. Possibly it’s a blend that is uniquely tasty to my own palate. However, for me I love being up before most everybody else. To take in the relative quiet and peace from the man-made world. My senses feel more alive and correspondingly the beauty seen seems more enhanced.

A particular scene that has long caught me eye is watching the wintering pelicans at White Rock Lake (Dallas, Texas) glide over the lake in pre-dawn and post-dusk light. If you live in Dallas, it’s worth getting up early or staying at the lake a little bit later than normal to see it. It should be a warm, delicious tea for the tastebuds of anybody who likes nature. If you don’t live in Dallas, I hope my image gives it a little justice.
