01.04.2019 Harris Hill

Another early start was a bit easier, in a way, as Bentley decided he needed to go out at 3:30.  As long as we were up, he decided he needed his breakfast then too.  Still, that’s better than 1:30 which he has done a few times.  No breakfast then.

Anyway, I scooted up to New Salem again for sunrise. I was happy to see the sky at NNE lit up and colorful as the rising sun is blocked by trees at this time of the year. And Harris Hill is a pleasant sight.

Once again, this is just a few steps from the car.  One of these days a hike will be the goal.

  1. Ansel Adams photographed from (the roof of) his car, so you’re in good company.
    Happy dawn layers.

    No sunrise photo for you tomorrow, it seems. I wondered how cold it might have been these past mornings, so I went to look. When I saw your forecast for tomorrow, I just shivered.

    The colors of the sky are lovely above the dark line of the horizon. I’m assuming that’s a fog layer, too — perhaps mist rising from water hidden by the hills. It looks quiet, and serene.

    • It’s a bit raw today…a good one to stay in, do chores, and read with a beagle on one’s lap. I’ll have to see what tomorrow brings. I’ve something very different in the pipeline next.

      I think it’s a low-lying cloud bank, but clouds and fog are made up of the same element. Maybe there is a lot of moisture in the ground, as well as ponds and lakes, that contribute to the cloud formation close to the ground. Or maybe there is “heavy water” making the rounds. Lately the better color has not been near where the sun will rise but reflected off clouds more northerly than the sun’s position. BTW, did you notice my polarizing mistake? I muted it a bit in Photoshop, but it’s still noticeable mid picture. I forgot to remove the filter.

        Now that you mention it, I do see it, but I hadn’t otherwise. The sky so closely resembles some of the sunrises and sunsets we see here, I didn’t think a thing about it. Interesting.

  4. This is a beautiful image, Steve. I didn’t notice any “mistake” in it.
    Yes, we are supposed to see upper 40’s today….in the spirit of embracing what is, I’m going to enjoy it. Not a sunrise, however. I leave those to you! 😀 Although, I did think this year I might creep out in the early hours to see if I can get a good shot of the white pelican when they come through. I’ve started looking already because our lakes are mostly open water already. Or still. I’m curious to see whether they will start coming through earlier.
