September Sunrise

I’ve seen a lot of sunsets in my life, we all have, so it was kind of nice to be able to watch (and photograph) a sunrise.  It’s probably the only real upside (for me, at least) to waking up early.

Now, I know it’s now October (yay, my favorite month!) and the title of this post is “September Sunrise” but fear not, I haven’t lost my mind, it’s not a mistake.  The photo was taken in September, hence the title. d_[^_^]

I like how the morning fog/mist made the scene kind of ethereal.

Enjoy the sunsets, folks, but be sure to watch a few sunrises!

Until next time…

Sunrise Through The Fog

 

I always stop for a moment to take a look outside when I get up in the morning to feed my cats.  Once, I’m sure loyal readers will remember, I was rewarded when I saw a deer saunter into my yard.  A while ago, while I was feeding my cats, I looked out the window to see a dense morning fog shrouding my house.  While my little furry friends ate, I watched as the sun began to rise through the fog.  It was a cool sight.  So what did I do?  What every photographer does when they see a cool sight.  I grabbed my camera, stepped outside, and took a few shots.

 

This is what I came away with.

 

Autumn Sunrise

 

Don’t let things like cloudy days and fog deter you from getting outside and photographing the world around you.  Make a hindrance into an opportunity.

 

I’d like to wish everyone a happy, safe, and fun Halloween/Samhain.  And to my Spanish friends/readers, on November 2nd, Happy Dia De Los Muertos!

 

Until next time…

Hello There, Sunrise!

It’s rare that I wake up in time to capture the first light of the rising sun.  On Tuesday, August 7, I managed to catch it.  Granted I didn’t wake up early for it.

Wait, how’s that possible you ask?  Simple.  I didn’t go to bed the evening of the 6th!

I was up all night playing a game.  Don’t laugh.  Those of you that play video games know how easy it is to lose track of time.  You get busy searching the virtual country side for treasure chests or get involved in a quest and all notion of time goes out the window.  Well that’s what happened.  In fact, I was so engrossed in this game (if you want to know what I was playing, ask and I’ll share) that I probably would have missed the sunrise completely if my stomach hadn’t started trying to devour itself in hunger.

As I paused my game and shuffled out into the kitchen, I looked out the window and saw the beginnings of an awesome sunrise.  I decided to forgo my breakfast for a little while longer, much to my raging stomach’s displeasure, and picked up my camera.

So, kids, the next time one of your parents yells at you for being up all night, just say you were waiting to photograph the sunrise!  I doubt that will work to get you off the hook, but it sounds better than “Get off my back, ma! I was playing a game!” [^_^]

Until next time…
