Sunrise at Jelke's Creek

This has been the summer of staying close to home. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel much, except for a weekend or two in Racine or Door County, Wisconsin. So most of my photo explorations have taken place within a few miles of my home.

Jelke’s Creek is a waterway that meanders through the nearby village of Sleepy Hollow. Much of the land surrounding the creek is a nature preserve and bird sanctuary. I made my way out there one morning last weekend.

This photo is another blended shot of two exposures of the same scene, taken as the sun appeared over the treetops in the distance.

For what it's worth: This is post number 800 at Points of Light, which I started in May of 2005 as an outlet for the pile of photos I was accumulating through my hobby. You are among more than 70,000 visitors who have stopped this way since then. Thanks for coming by.

Gongrats on hitting 800 posts. I might not have seen them all, but every one I've seen has been magnificent.

This one is no exception. Beautiful.
