Sunrise at Barnum Park

On the road at 6:00 a.m. Where to go? Just drive.

Pulled off 6th Avenue at Federal Blvd. – IN the city but found a little wetland lake called Barnum Park. It is a little oasis right along side a busy, limited access highway. I have sped by there at 65 mph many a time. The lake is below the highway, making it not as much of a visual distraction as you would guess. Mist rose off of the lake but it was in too much shadow to photograph well. The variety of older trees and hillside view of the Denver skyline
made for a beautiful sunrise.

I watched two white pelicans and a great blue heron as they just stood there in the lake. (notice the beaver lurking in the background!)

I think we were all waiting for the sun to warm us up!

These are a great series of images, but that bottom one with the glassy reflections is the winner for me!
