Lake Wilhelm, Pennsylvania

I recently attended a workshop where the presenting photographer spoke about taking lemons and making lemonade when your planned photography trip does not turn out as planned. I had an opportunity to put that into action.   On Saturday afternoon I left home to a partly cloudy sky that had plenty of sunshine with a plan to take pictures of bald eagles.   I knew that spotting the eagles would be hit or miss, but decided there would be plenty of other things to photograph while I waited to see if they made an appearance.  By the time I reached Lake Wilhelm it was completely overcast, and started to snow.   I would not be deterred.  Saturday was the only day this weekend I could take time to go out and shoot.

Shortly after I got out of the truck I heard some geese, and saw a large flock coming to land on the lake.   I didn't have my tripod set up, I didn't have a test shot.  I didn't even have my settings done on the camera.   I popped on the first lens I could get my hands on, and started to shoot.   I only had a couple pictures kind of come out.

I spotted some large raptors flying south over the lake, and decided to move to see if I could spot anything good.   While I did not get a good shot of the birds flying over head, and none chose to fish in my presence I chose to take some shots of the area.   It is a flat area with nothing to note in the winter months.  I plan to check it out again when the trees are in bloom.
