05.03.2017 A brief moment in time

This scene is from a few minutes prior to my post the other day-“Oh, just another spectacular beginning to a day”.  I enjoyed the shapes of the clouds over the mountains in this view to the north from New Salem as the sun was reaching the eastern horizon.  The mid-range valleys are always appealing to me and quite often there are soft pink hues at a tangent to the sunrise.

  2. Lovely. I appreciate the clouds attempting that Hokusai Japanese-wave effect.

    As much as I enjoyed the previous photo, I think I prefer the subtlety of this one. Softer, more pastel colors. And great atmospheric effects. Really nice!

    • A friend, and others I am sure, term the first a “nuclear” sunrise. I generally prefer subtle but have found the more colorful ones to be more popular. Thanks, Todd.

    Instead of a belt, it looks like Venus is wearing a sash. The broad band of peachy-pink is a lovely bankground for the clouds.


    • Yes, a nice scalloped sash. The peachy-pink hue is often seen from here when looking to the north. There is probably some color science explanation and I should pursue that for the next time I post it or as a followup.

    Wonderfully articulated silhouettes, each one a different subtle shade, and the tree shapes play well with the cloud shapes.

    • Thanks, Lynn. The clouds are what drew me in. I’ve shot this scene a few times with the same northern dawn color but the clouds offered something different…they remind me of powerful waves.


  6. To a (currently) flat-lander, those mountains look mystical. I’m not sure I’d ever get anything done if I lived where I could see that!
