We left the house at 05:00 .... why do photographers do everything at dawn? *shaking my head* if it was summer it would be 04:00 out of the house for the early sunrise...
Oh yes, they want to get that beautiful morning light, that glorious golden color.
So I joined hubby on his trip to Marievale, must be his one millionth trip there, he didn't have any of his usual buddies with him and with Tigs out of the house at a sleepover I decided to pack my flask and blankie and join him on this trip. This was my first.
Marievale is a bird sanctuary and a real birders paradise and of course heaven for photographers. Perfect little hides right here at home (45 minute drive for us).
We were the first ones to arrive and book our spot. We watched the sun rise, had coffee/him & hot chocolate/me. Listened to the birds beautiful choir as they woke and came out to warm in the early morning sun.
It was a good morning! The birds got louder, I love their music ...
