It’s true, it never gets old for me- the beauty of the sun rising through the early morning sky. This photo is another case of being in the right place to take advantage of something totally unexpected.
I’d been out early morning (like three-thirty-early!) photographing the recent ‘Hunter’s or Blood Moon’. If you’ve read any of my previous posts concerning Moon photography, you’ll know my course of study stretches back to April of this year, through June, September, and October.
Those photographic experiments taught me lots when it came to the ‘hows and whys’ of getting the right show in challenging conditions.
Back to this photo then, dawn found me elated with all the Blood Moon shots I took, but slightly exhausted too. As I headed home the part I didn’t expect was a lightening of the sky into what you see in this shot.
Needless to say, I put the exhaustion aside for a minute and got the Nikon back out for a few more snaps.
Nature, especially what she can do at dawn never gets old or maybe it’s just the fascinated kid in me always looking for her to offer inspiration!
