Most of my posts on Babcock-Webb are intended to provide a bit of a guided tour around the area. I usually shoot them during the day when the light is good for descriptive photos to accompany the text. But, the real beauty of the place shows in the early morning and evening when the wildlife is active and the light is changing by the second.
This was taken on the morning I decided I needed to cover Oilwell Grade south of Tucker. I went over early hoping to catch the mist on Webb Lake. Unfortunately, my timing was slightly off and the sun was higher than I wanted. There was still mist in the trees but, the lake was clear. You can see in this picture of Marl Pond 1, at the entrance, that the mist was no longer holding on the open water.
When I got to Marl Pond 3 there was still a slight mist over the water and the sun was high enough that the shadows of the trees were being cast through the mist. I still had the mist in the trees as a background making for a pleasing sunrise picture.
