EARLY IN THE MORNING JUST AS THE SUN WAS RISING

Early Bird

For this week’s photo challenge, get up early and explore the morning light.


Living on the east coast in a house that faces east, sunrise is a much easier capture than sunset. There are sunrises in the deep part of winter. The glowing sky over a world buried deep under snow and ice.

      • Out here in AZ, the sun tries to kill you.., but where the sun really shows its colors is sunSETs. They say it’s mostly due to polution in the air. All those nice exhaust particles refract different colors, but mostly, a lot of reds and oranges. The combo creates some pretty spectacular sunsets.., I envy you seeing the sun as it makes its first appearance. Nice colors…

        • Well, any dust in the air … any kind of particles … will improve sunsets and sunrises. In Israel, the year Mt. St. Helena exploded, we had blood-red sunsets for a month. Chernobyl gave us some very weird looking flowers … and a lot of gorgeous sunsets. Our house faced west, we had to go somewhere else to see the sunrise. They look the same, really. You can’t tell the difference from a picture unless you know where it was taken and whether it faces east or west. Apparently equinoxes produces the best light shows. May favorite is still sunrise over the Atlantic. Except for the mosquitoes.

            • I wouldn’t have put it quite that way … but yeah. Right now, we’ll totally inundated with pollen. Choke and enjoy indeed. Flowers, leaves, grasses, ferns … sunrise and sunset.. My cardiologist pointed out it’s better than being up to your eyeballs in ice and snow.
