A great way to greet the day!

With my new 100-400 L series lens, I slipped out the door this morning at 4:00 am headed for the south west shores of Lake Winnipeg. It's only a 20 min. drive from our home and I was hoping to capture a few sunrise photo's or two. As it turned out, I wasn't to be disappointed! I spent 1-1/2 hours walking along the lake shore and these are just some of the results.

This is how it all began. The small dots on the distant horizon are actually pelicans.

A multitude of birds were beginning to start their day off including the pelcans who are very abundant in the region.

NO, this is not the dorsal fin of a skark, in fact, its actually a common carp surfacing...I had no idea that I had captured it until after I downloaded the pic's!

This appears to be a black capped turn, it's definately not a gull...

Very nice. I agree about the second sunrise shot, also love the last one.

Beautiful morning. I hate to get up early, but love to be up to see this kind of show.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
