A September Sunrise

September 21, 2016  •  1 Comment

I've backed away from looking for or shooting landscapes recently; other subjects have drawn my interests.  However, Wednesday morning, September 14 around 0625 was different.  The sunrise was gorgeous and I shot it - mainly for my own viewing rather than posting.  However, three persons independently made unsolicited exclamations about that scene, so I changed my mind.

I would add that while the colors were beautiful, the low fog was rapidly shifting, creating a dynamic and dramatic scene.  A hilltop could be an island in the fog one moment and connected to a larger mountain the next.  A photograph freezes 1/125 of a second or less out of the larger span of time, so, while the sunrise colors were spectacular in that tiny frozen slice, the overall "picture" was a bigger and better event, one worthy of simply gazing at the transcendence.

Loved your sharing this "western" sunrise.. More accustomed to our NC Outer Banks ones. This is sensual, meditative beauty.
Glad you know how to capture it!
