Eagle Creek Park Sunset - SkyWatch Friday

On my way back to school this past Saturday I stopped by a local reservoir just west of Indianapolis, Eagle Creek Reservoir. Many species of waterfowl have moved into the area so my plan was to find a few of the species that I still hadn't seen this year, the ducks cooperated (including Ruddy Duck, Greater and Lesser Scaup, Common and Hooded Merganser, and many Common Goldeneyes) and the sunset cooperated too. Here are a couple shots from the sunset.


This shot was taken looking south over the lake. The dam is in the distance.


The sky opened up creating some interesting lighting conditions and reflected off of the water running into the lake.

Good capture, it sounded like a good plan to me. I am always up to photographing birds.

Beautiful sunset. I am glad you were able to see the birds. I have been waiting for them myself, but have not had success yet.

I really like that bottom one with the break in the clouds and the clarity of the pebbles. Very nice.

Beautiful Sky Watch!

This looks like a great place for waterfowl to rest a spell during their spring migrations.

Interesting sky over the lake. I want to go out to our Bird Refuge to see what's coming through this spring.
