Redhead at Thomas Point Road.

It was seriously cold this morning, but I tried for some sunrise images at Sandy Point anyway. It was a waste of time.You really can’t tell what’s going to happen until you’re there, and even then you may have to wait a while to see if a good sky will develop. I’ve wasted a lot of mornings this year when the sky remained gray from horizon to far overhead.

I stopped at Possum Point after Sandy Point, and found a few ducks, but nothing worth spending time on. Thomas Point wasn’t really much better, with just a few birds close enough for pictures.

I then stopped at my friend’s house on Thomas Point Road, where there was a good variety, with most  of the birds being fairly close.
