ODDBALLS AND SUNRISES: CEE’S ODDBALL PHOTO CHALLENGE

EARLY IN THE MORNING, JUST AS THE SUN WAS RISING

This time of year is dominated by the sunrise. Or, at least it is for me. This year has not been spectacular, but it has been lovely.

Are these oddball? I can’t say. I took them all very early in the morning. Just at or immediately after dawn. I shot from a window off my bedroom where I keep a camera in case I see something.

It could be the dawn, a bird, clouds, or anything else. I can grab a picture before it gets away and often, these pictures are so ephemeral, they exist for mere seconds.

Moreover, I took all of these without benefit of eyeglasses. I’m was not entirely sure what I got — if anything — until I download the pictures to my computer sometimes days later.

All of these were taken on the morning of my birthday. It was a lovely morning. A rosy dawn, a golden sunrise. A good day to be alive.

    • Thanks. That was the surprise in the shots I took. It was such a long shot, I wasn’t sure what I got. It looked good on the screen, but that’s not always an accurate indicator. I should trust this lens more. It’s really good … better than I expect almost always.
