Abstract Winter Sunrise


Blogger micki said...

Homeschooling five kids keeps me busy. I live in a heavily wooded area, and to see a sunrise, I have to drive 25 minutes to the end of the peninsula to watch it from the shore. During the holidays in December, my husband had a week and a half vacation. I was able to get out three mornings during the week to shoot the sunrise. I fired off a roll of film each time. One morning I got lucky with an absolutely spectacular sunrise. The colors were great, and the film I used kept them true to life. At the end, right before the sun rose over the horizon, I zoomed in and took a bunch of shots. Here are three of my favorites from that moment. The sun didn’t rise over the Bay that morning, but rather, over the oil refinery. That’s the small light you see in the photo on the botto.

What an amazing sunrise. I would have thought that these were edited to make them look better but that does not seem to be the case. Wow! These sunrises are pretty rare and hard to photograph. Great job!

something about sunrises that are always good for the soul. I used to live on the beach and it was my daily ritual, now that I live on the river, I watch the sunsets. I miss my sunrises.

these just take my breath away.

Lovely trilogy Micki with great colour and vibrancy. The contrasting angles the individual images were shot at is great at creating different perspectives of each image.

Very nice sunset colours! I think this shows how much digital still has to catch up with film. Ok ok... I know, it's actually the photographer, not the equipment. ;)

beautiful:) your pictures are more sensitive than the others. i'm sure that is more important than skill or quality of cameras.

I must say the middle show it my favorite. The composition is unexpected and the clouds are just gorgeous. You homeschool 5 kids? Wow! Impressive.

Pardon, "middle shot" is what I'd meant to type.

Very nice and, as you know, I have recent experience with waking up at ungodly hours to do the same. Is it a sickness? Maybe.

Anyway, although I enjoyed them all, my preference is for #1 - the water gives it depth and draws my eye to the sun on the horizon.

This series is amazing! I am glad you posted all three of them, because for me through the different compositions different moods are created. And I really can't decide, which one I like best and it's a great thing I don't have to :-). You really seem to have the "photographic mojo" and I'll be watching your site from now on.
