Sunrise Bokeh

The winter storm has passed, the sun is out, and the ice is melting.  The sun rising over the trees this morning was a welcome sight and was pretty reflecting over the ice covered limbs.  I grabbed the camera but despite best efforts, a camera just cannot capture the light as you see it.

After several attempts at the shot I wanted and gave up on, I began focusing or should I say out of focusing on the bokeh.  The "golden hour" light gave the bokeh and nice, rich copper color.

The birds were back out feeding heavily at the suet feeder and seed feeder this morning.  There were so many yesterday and today I would just throw a cup full of seed on the ground so all could eat.  The birds looked nice sitting in the ice coated limbs.

 With only 55 days until the first day of spring, I hope this is the first and last winter weather for the year.  The ice did a lot of damage on the trees and it will take several days to clean up the limbs.

Love your new cover photo, Paula. We didn't get any of that nasty ice, thankfully.
