I didn’t have a rosy dawn but I can share one

Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge Rosy DawnRed Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge Rosy Dawn

I have hit a lot of bumps on the path that my life has taken me and yesterday I hit another when my site experienced an outage. I had hoped that when I woke up the outage would be resolved but dawn for me wasn’t that rosy.

Nor was it as rosy as the dawn I photographed at Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge two years ago.

I often think of natural places when life gets stressful for me and I thought of Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge to help soothe and calm me while getting through the stresses of last night and this morning. I wish I had been able to get out this glorious morning with my camera in hand but it wasn’t to be. Some times I get the short straw.

Back to thinking about nature, birds, photography and the amazing, wild places that await me.

    Mia, this is so gorgeous! I want to be in this picture! How amazing that you were able to witness this in person! I am so sorry about the trouble you were having and I do hope it is all resolved. It is amazing how modern technology can leave us so frustrated. I used to cry when I thought I couldn’t blog anymore. Anytime something went wrong I would panic and think it would never get fixed. Now I just roll with the punches, but some punches are just harder to take. Here’s hoping you can go the 20 rounds and still stand!
