First Blush: Bird house at dawn

birdhouseOnce again the eye is capable of seeing more beauty than the camera. Trying to capture the shape and texture of the gnarly branches and birdhouse in the foreground and the ring of lights around Lake Lagunita in the background, the female Dawn Jogger took this photo two ways – with the flash on and off. Neither produced satisfactory results, even with some manipulation in iPhoto. The bird house doesn’t show up enough in the shot with the flash off but is too bright with the flash on.
