Summer Sunrise - Dawn

Clear Skies, Brilliant Sunrise

In my opinion, interesting light can make for the most amazing photographs. A simple capture of the shadows a tree casts can be fascinating. And I can think of no light more fascinating than a brilliant sunrise or sunset, that moment when Mother Nature displays her most brilliant colors.

As often happens, I did not plan to take photos this morning. I was simply feeding the dogs on the back deck and noticed the colors glowing to the East. Grabbed the camera and tripod, ran upstairs, opened the window, removed the screen, and began to capture the colors. I was rewarded with clear skies except for the valley fog below us and a brilliant sunrise.

And don’t worry about the dogs. They got their breakfast. They may not share my fascination with the colors of the sky, but they do share my love of food.
