I love going out early during the “golden hour.” It is really the only time I get during the week to take photographs, especially this time of year when it is dark when I get out of work. Here are a few images I have taken that are defined by the glow of the morning sun.

Anyone who has been following this blog for some time knows that taking pictures is one of my life’s joys, but the parameters of my small-town survival-heavy life do not allow me many trips to new or exotic locations. I am not retired; I do not have the funds or the time to travel to faraway places. But I do see a lot of beauty in my local surroundings and I try to use my photography to help others see the same.

The other morning was a foggy one at Island Grove Pond. I went to check on the swans’ babies.

I went to check on the ducks too. All flights were grounded.

It is nice to see couples or partners of any sort.

Recently I watched these ducks have a morning bath, then swim away together.

And I watched these two bunnies chase each other around the yard.

Lastly, I was walking with a hiking group and saw this couple enjoying a beautiful day.
