“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep.” (Rumi)
An image from another early morning flight with the drone. This photo was made towards the end of civil twilight, just five minutes before sunrise. Clouds all around, colored by the sun just below the horizon, tinged the entire landscape in pastel pink tones. I’m hoping for similar conditions as spring progresses and the landscape will turn greener – but that will also mean getting up earlier, a month or two from now… :P
The water level at Lake Hodges is pretty low as you can see. I doubt it will change much with the dry winter that we have (Bernardo Mountain is still looking pretty brown and dry). Ten years ago, after the very wet winter of 2010/2011, the entire bottom center part visible in the photo was water, and the lake was overflowing at the dam back then. We’re not going to see that happen again, because new dam safety requirements now mandate that the water level be kept lower.
