Sunrise on Caddo Lake, with its bayous, wetlands, and ancient cypress forest, is spectacular. The lake straddles the border between Texas and Louisiana. We’re staying in Louisiana but our daily boat excursions are on the Texas side of the lake. We launch with Captain Rich well before sunrise when it is still dark. Yesterday morning, there were scattered clouds but remants of the moon and quite a few stars were still visible at our 6AM launch. The temperatures were mild and so was a pleasure to sit aboard the pontoon boat and photograph the gorgeous views surrounding us. The intense color of the sky remained well after the sun appeared above the distant hills so I continued to shoot the sunrise after it rose above the horizon.
