Foggy morning at Stockdale

Through the Fog

Last night I heard that the weather people were predicted fog for this morning.  Fog usually makes for some interesting conditions to photograph in so I decided I would get up early and head to Stockdale Park on Tuttle Creek Lake.  I thought the trees in the water there might be interesting in the fog.

Well you probably know I’m not a morning person so I woke up much later than I intended to and didn’t get out to Stockdale until way past when I would normally be out shooting landscapes (the Bad).  Luck was with me though and there was still pretty heavy fog on the lake when I got there (the Good).  As I was walking towards the shoreline to photograph the trees I noticed a large bird flying low over the water and realized it was a bald eagle (the very much unexpected!).  I didn’t think any would still be around this time of year.  I was able to get a few snaps of it flying and a couple of it in a tree (it is the very small speck with a white in the pictures below!).  All in all a good morning.

Hope everyone had a chance to enjoy something today and find the good and the unexpected in your day.


  1. the black and white one is awesome. The color version is lovely to but I am really leaning towards the b&w. It reminds me of one of my favorite photographers, Dan Montgomery.

  2. Thanks Matt! I think I like the BW better too. I’m going to have to convert some others from this shoot to BW.

  3. Good call Harold, I just converted the 4093 to BW and I really like it, thanks! I’ve updated the post to include it in the gallery.
