January 29

 I like both these photos today and I'm not making myself choose just one. These were both taken at a tiny nature preserve near our house; I photographed here last month as well.  I was traveling light this morning and I only had my 55-200 lens.  This was a good thing for the hooded merganser shot, but maybe not so good for the foggy tree, because I've pulled back to 55mm there and still didn't manage to get all of the tree in the photo.  That's my criticism with the top photo.  The thing I like about it is that it reminds me of a Chinese ink drawing where the white paper makes the negative space.  I love that the water is basically "white".  I'm absolutely loving this foggy spell!
