WEDNESDAYS ARE FOR COLOR -- Waiting for the Morning Light


Blogger micki said...

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Fuji Superia ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/8
Aperture Setting - f-8 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 70-300mm zoom lens @ 130mm
Polarizing Filter
Scanning Method - Epson Perfection 4990 Photo scanner

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at and I will be happy to provide you with one.

I took this on a very chilly morning back in November. The sunrise wasn’t much to speak of, so I turned my camera in the opposite direction to see what I could see. This is what I saw, a ship waiting for the light to come up so that she could raise her sails and set off out onto the Bay. I shot this down in Yorktown on Riverwalk Landing very close to the bridge.

A gorgeous setting for a sailboat. I really like the beautiful sky colors. How's the new scanner impress you by now?

Somehow, there is a sense that the boat is eager to be under way now that the day is about to begin. Feels more than just a photograph, more like an event.

Beautiful. I've seen lots of sunsets, but I don't often see the sunrise. Not like I can see much here where I'm at anyway.

Beautiful image with a very "period" appearance. This boat looks like it could have been photographed anytime in the last 70 years or so. Very nice.
