Doc Ellen’s Palette (I don’t think I will ever entirely grow up…) I was chasing water bubbles, made in the waves by the passing boats, and simply seeing if I could stop the bubbles’ sliding motion. What I didn’t realize was just how much reflection of the shoreline I was also recording. In the bubble: that is the sun to the left, because I am looking south, and the shoreline I am sitting on and its tall trees cross the diameter of the bubble. There are even a few clouds to the right/north in the reflection.
Having just added new photos to my print gallery (more than a dozen bird species), I want to say my heart-felt thanks to each of you who has bought a print from me in the past. My thanks to those of you who check out my gallery site and consider making a purchase. Each purchase helps me to continue my field studies at Jordan Lake and I do enjoy the studying. However, my biggest joy is in the sharing with all of you what I observe at the lake. Thanks for considering a purchase.
Peace and Grace, Doc Ellen

Jordan Lake Palette
where doc ellen interprets nature a wee bit differently

I didn’t make it to the lake. I had to stay home, so, I bundled up and sat on my back steps.
The little iPhone wasn’t happy about the cold but my big Canon camera did just fine.
The recordings are from the beginning of the eclipse to the first of the totality.
Twice a day, when the daylight is abundant, a special ”golden hour” happens.
The daylight is softer and redder than when the sun is up high in the sky.
The light makes the earth, sky, water and yes, eagles glow.
This adult bald eagle was magical in the golden hour just before sunset today.
