Jordan Lake Dam, Haw River, Wednesday, July 8, 2020. Sometimes, sometimes something magical happens. And by luck or grace I get to photograph a river burnished by the rising sun. An ornament appears, a summer cloud brought to earth and soundlessly flying above the water. This is a great egret. It came in from the lake and up over the dam and floated past me as I stood at the riprap on the Haw River. Magic! Take care, be safe and oh, be well.
