This morning, I happened to be awake early enough to see the sunrise, and it was a very pretty one. I also happened to have my camera very handy – these scenes change very quickly. I find there’s always something emotionally powerful in the dawn.It's kind to share!
This post is prompted by the brand-new linky idea here, at The Olivers Madhouse. The idea is to say something about a magic moment, that is, a moment that was magic to you – recently or otherwise, each week.
OK… Well… I collect moments, as I’ve said before. Some people call them photographs. But every photograph records a moment. And for an opener for this new linky, what could be more appropriate, and more magic, than a moment at dawn?
Now, for me, these are some of the hardest moments to record; this is because the task entails getting up early on a day when I otherwise have no need to, and going out in the cold. But it’s worth it. Try it. Oh, and somehow, dawn and water go together. Just watch, and record, the most spectacular, magic, moments.
I haven’t joined in here for a little while due to many commitments, but I saw this subject and was once again tempted to take part.
I’d like to introduce my readers to a highly valuable photographic accessory: An alarm clock. It’s also good to have handy a flask of tea or coffee, and some chocolate or other preferred energy food to sustain you at ridiculous o’clock. Oh, and you’ll need a tripod.
Plan an early-morning trip to a place of scenic beauty where you have a good Easterly view, and you can capture pictures like this:
