While most of the US was fighting crowds and starting their Christmas shopping on Black Friday, I was out at Circle B Bar Reserve for a little photography R&R. I met up with Susan, Donna and Dan for a nice leisurely pace through the reserve and even ran into Mark and Dina along the way. The bird photography opportunities were not fantastic, but we still had a great morning. For me, the highlight of the morning (besides the friendship) was the blooming Burr Marigolds. There were fields of yellow blooms everywhere and they were quite beautiful.
Sunrise was quite nice too as the clouds cooperated to allow for some drama in the sky as well.
I hope the marigolds stick around until I can get back out there.
