Heron at Sunrise, Diaz Lake, Sierra Nevada, CA
(1 in a multiple picture album)
I've passed this little lake and park many times previously on my way to and from Mammoth. This morning I decided to stop just as the sun was rising. I found this scene with the still water reflecting the ash mounds in front of the Sierra Nevada. A heron was out in the reeds looking for a frog for breakfast.
The highest point in the lower 48, Mt Whitney is just visible in the left center of the photo.
