Pre-Morning Hinckley

Hinckley Reservoir

We are supposed to be receiving some rain today. The forecast has it starting this afternoon. In my mind, that equates to a cloudy sunrise and I needed to get outside to find me an image. Based on the angle of the sunrise, I thought my best location would be at Hinckley Reservoir. I was unsure as to the conditions of the lake, i.e., if there was still ice cover, if there would be some open water, but it didn’t make a difference to me, I needed to go out and explore. I have been sitting on my butt the whole week.

As I started my drive I was a little hesitant as the sky appeared cloud covered but as I drove further East there was a band of clear sky near the horizon that would allow the morning color to slip through. I was a little early to the reservoir, about an hour before sunrise, but that allowed me to get everything ready at a slower pace and scope out a few areas to place my camera.

I played down by the water for close to 30 minutes. I think I was able to capture some interesting images. I will be posting those as I process them. The image I have today is the last one I captured. It is from the top of the berm near the dam. I was hoping to show as much of the view as I could. The colors turned out to be fantastic this morning…

  1. Wow! It started pouring rain here in Michigan around 5 a.m. Still raining hard. I think it’s headed to you, so good thing you got out there this morning. I’m like you, I need to get out, have been sitting around way too much….but I’d like it to stop raining first!
