Mostly Pelicans (1/28/17)

It was windy and cold at White Rock Lake today. I dressed appropriately but I just can’t seem to find a way to keep my hands warm. I can stay out only as long as I can take my freezing fingers. I started and ended the day at Sunset Bay today. I visited a few other places around the lake in between.

I stayed out a little longer than I might otherwise have mainly because I was using my new Tamron 150-600 for the first time. I really like it but I may have to join a gym to build some muscles in my arms. I definitely gave myself a workout by sticking with that lense throughout the day. I was tempted to change to the 16-300 but I challenged myself to keep going. So, here are a few photos from today.
