08.03.2016 Prior to the Lily

Before driving over to the pond where I photographed the lily and the pad, there was a little matter of sunrise…as always, or most always-it’s a bit foggy today.

  2. Nice. Is it as quiet as it looks to be up there?

    • For the most part. This spot is only 100 or so feet from U.S. Rte. 202 and as sunrise gets later the traffic increases. More often I’ll just hear coyotes, turkeys or the sound of a nearby brook below the lookout.

    Sorry you had to tolerate that start to your day.

    The tough part is getting up in time to be there for the moment. I’ve done it many times, but it’s getting tougher and tougher. Thanks for the renewed inspiration!

      Too bad you couldn’t add an excerpt from Liebestod that folks could hear when they click on your photo.

    • It is getting more difficult, indeed. But…as the earth rotates it is getting a bit easier each week. Eventually I will be rising and waiting around until the time arrives to leave. And it will also be a bit chillier. It was really tough when I would go to Acadia in June for sunrise on Cadillac Mountain which is known as the earliest spot in the continental U.S.

        I’m quite happy to leave that sort of adventure to you, and equally happy to wait to see what you can do with your persistence and perseverance. I have done my share, and I know what it takes. Too bad the tough stuff gets ever harder to manage.

      • Although it is getting to be more of a challenge, I can’t let it slow me down…well, I am slower, but I’m not grinding to a halt any time soon-I hope. 🙂

  6. No one else has mentioned the two boulders; they’re what I saw first and what grabbed me when I looked at the photograph.

  7. I’ve been waiting for you to throw in some rocks er I mean boulders. Love those big rocks and because they make me happy for you have rocked this picture. It’s gorgeous.

    I remembered the rocks from your previous post. It’s interesting how, in each photo, the sky and the clouds seem to fit together. The heavy, somewhat leaden clouds, the band of shadowed trees, and the dark rocks hold the image together nicely.

    • I think that the combination of elements here is what brings me back repeatedly, Linda. There is more behind this scene, but that would bring in the parking circle which I don’t think really adds much. I have to rely on the atmospherics for variation.such as this old shot.
