Project 365/357 – Ducks in the Bay

TP4jan13-9978

A very cold morning with the car thermometer registering a balmy 8 degrees F. This Florida sun bunny has never been in single digit temperatures before. But having lived in Maryland for over ten years now, I have grown acclimated to the cold. That and a huge wardrobe of winter gear. The kind that when you take it all off, it can fill a whole bin on the clothes washer.

The reason for heading out on such a chilly morn? I crazily offered a Bird field photo workshop at a local park near Annapolis. This park is on a point that looks over Thomas Point Lighthouse. A place where even on a calm day, the winds hit you hard.

Surprisingly, nine people showed up for the workshop. Their photo experience ranged from total novice to a retired professional photographer. Even though the ducks were a little away from the shoreline, there were plenty of wonderful photo opportunities to be had. Somehow I managed to last nearly three hours in the below freezing temperatures.

Now I’m in my jammies under a warm feather blanket. Think I’ll stay here for the rest of the evening. Hope your day was warmer than mine!
