~Summer Sunrise at the Lake~

Red Sky

Do you see something unusual or out of the ordinary in this photo? 

Sort of reminds me of Stephen King, for some reason.

The photos were not edited, other than sizing down.

I used the Tameron 18-200mm lens, with the Canon Rebel T2i.

All photos were taken Thursday morning, August 5, 2010.

“The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”

John Muir

This Hummingbird feeder is on the deck of the condo.  I took the photos, through the sliding door, on the same morning I took the sunrise photos. 

At one point, I counted 15 Hummingbirds at and around this feeder. 

It was an amazing sight.

The tiny birds will pack their bags, in just about another month, and move south for the winter.

From Wikipedia:

The Lake of the Ozarks is a large reservoir created by impounding the Osage River in the northern part of the Ozarks in central Missouri. Extents of three smaller tributaries to the Osage, the Niangua River, Grand Glaize Creek, and Gravois Creek, are included in the impoundment. The lake has a surface area of 55,000 acres (223 km²), over 1,150 miles (1,850 km) of shoreline, and the main channel of the Osage Arm stretches 92 miles (148 km) from end to end. The total drainage area is over 14,000 square miles (36,000 km2).
