Sunrise Watchman, Point Reyes National Seashore

Sunrise watchman, Point Reyes National Seashore - Pat Ulrich Wildlife Photography

A raptor surveys its domain at sunrise from the top of a tall pine tree. This shot was taken at a pull out along Limatour Road in Point Reyes National Seashore.


  1. Very nice silhouette Pat. I need to get up earlier.

  2. Thanks, Jim! I always enjoy being in Point Reyes for the sunrise, but this was one of the best I've experienced.

  3. Hiya Pat,

    Including the pine needles in the silhouette was clever. And that deep glow makes it so intense.

  4. Thanks, duck-or-grouse. I was definitely drawn to the silhouette of the tree as well since it has an interesting shape, and helps to place the bird in its world a bit more.
