The early bird......

On the morning of the 5th July, both L of Farm-ily and myself were up at the crack of dawn taking sunrise photos. Given dawn in early July is about 7.30, then it was not a huge sacrifice for me to be up at that hour. Take a look at L's very nicely composed photo here.

It looks like I was playing with camera settings and doing a bit of zooming. Of course now I have no idea what settings I used. They are in order of being taken.

  1. As a dawn addict I love both very different takes on sunrise.

  2. There are early morning people and there are late night people, and never the twain shall meet.

    I think of it this way. If God wanted us to get up early, the nation's alcohol laws would have been changed. And cinemas would be open.

    1. Hels, so true. How boring if everyone was ready to rise and shine at 6am.

  3. I like the molten gold tones. I rarely see a dawn breaking. I'm too close to the city and too low, there are trees and buildings in the way. Even getting up super early wouldn't make a difference unless I was somewhere way up high with a cross country view.

    2. Can't be done and the units are all only two stories anyway, not high enough to see the horizon with the hills still in the way. I'd have to get to the Mount Lofty lookout or somewhere similar. So that won't happen.

  4. It was a beautiful morning to be up and photographing the sky... both in Melbourne and southern NSW!

    1. CM, in my case, just a lucky morning that I was up and paying attention.

  5. They look beautiful Andrew. I'm not a dawn person...prefer to sleep late but most days I have to go to work, so I have to wake up early.

    1. Sami, I think I am actually a morning person, but not super early. Between six and seven suits me.

    1. Thanks Marie. Perhaps you don't want to see the sun coming up, heralding another boiling hot day.

  7. One great things about being on Cape Cod are the sunrises and sunsets. I got neither this visit, as I was with my granddaughter and she slept until after sunrise, and was in bed before the sun set. The last week that I have been home we have had nothing but hot, humid and cloudy weather. So no great sunsets over the lake. Sun rises are tricky because of the mountains. Ah the life in our days!

    1. Maribeth, I had a bit of look at Cape Cod, online. It is quite a beautiful part of your country. I can't stand humidity and I remember NYC does humidity very well.
