Dark Morning At The Ponds

It was a dark, wet morning at Delta Ponds. I got caught in a downpour. But I wasn't disappointed just the same. An egret flew in nearby and began to fish. Getting the white bird properly exposed meant darkening the rest of the scene. Plant life along the edge adds a beautiful element to the picture.
