I decided when I woke up this morning to run out and see what I could capture. The morning wasn’t extremely calm, with a slight breeze coming across the lake. I made my way down to Diamond Point Park again, and decided to see what I could do with the rising sun, as I am trying to improve on shooting into the light.
