Struggling to Take a Photo a Day

Yesterday at lunch I drove over to Churchill Lake in Germantown to take some photos. It was a nice day and there were ducks out on the lake. I took a few pictures with my point and shoot, but I got nothing that impressed me. If I had more time and my DLSR, I am sure I would have come back with something better. In the winter with the limited daylight and my work day spanning almost all of it, I have trouble taking the kind of photos that I like best. 

Today, I had a early meeting in Rockville, so I was up and out earlier than usual. It was dawn the eastern sky was quite striking with reds and blues. I had my camera with me, but I did not have time to seek out a good location to take the photo. I missed quite an opportunity today.
