If one is fortunate in late Winter to have a sunny morning, Heron Lake and El Vado Lake, North of Albuquerque, are superb subjects. No Summer crowds, and the vast scenery all to oneself.
At each lake, I launched the drone from that lake's dam, then supplemented that angle with stills from the shore near the dams.
Speaking with the dam engineer at El Vado, I learned that the lake level was down 70 feet from its full state, and despite a good beginning to the snow-pack, lately the snowfall has been lacking. They are hoping for more snow in the Rockies, but aren't optimistic for this Spring's runoff.
As a result, the long northern expanse of the lake is completely dry, filled with brush and somewhat chilling to see.
