Reflecting Warm Morning Light
Warm light and reflections help to create a feeling of calm in this image of a Great Egret. These graceful birds are exciting to photograph, and the perfect reflection makes it twice as nice.
Early morning light and late afternoon light are warmer than mid-day light, and can add a nice touch to some images. It is very subtle in this shot, with just a bit of warm light in the background and a tiny touch of it along the left side in the water. The tone of the warm areas matches perfectly with the color of the egret's bill, so everything ties in well together. And the cool white of the bird is a nice counterpoint to the warmth in the background.
