06.09.2019 Tequila Sunrise

The real thing probably wouldn’t be a good idea at 5 a.m. on a Sunday morning.

I don’t really drink much alcohol now, but for a few years I did while involved with a band that played a lot of night clubs. Besides a good gin and tonic, I enjoyed tequila sunrises and eventually made my own. I used to love giving them a good stir and watching the grenadine rise through the orange tequila. 😎

  1. Just as good, or maybe better now, with a really good bottle of spring water. Beautiful.

    • I am happy with our Brita water which filters water that goes through our whole house filter. from the well-respected Amherst water supply…Lawrence Swamp.
      Thanks, Michael. It was a portent forthe rest of the day, warm and lovely.

    My drink of choice at the moment is a nice cup of ginger tea. But I think anything would go well with this image. Great colors, and for me the foreground detail of the grasses helps make the photo. Another really nice one, Steve.

  3. I’ll take the pictured kind of sunrise over the other one.

    It does look good enough to imbibe but I think I will stick to my morning coffee.

    Many of your sunrises actually remind me of pousse-café, that wonderful marvel of specific gravities born in NOLA (if I remember correctly). I couldn’t find one to match this sunrise perfectly, but I thought this one was nice.

    If only you could have had an eagle flying through those skies — or an Eagle, for that matter. Maybe Glenn Frey was lurking around.

    • Those pousse-cafés look so good that even a teetotaler like me might have to indulge.

      It would be pretty cool to have an eagle, or Eagle, in one of my sunrises. I suppose I could do a composite but I hesitate to do such things. Once I did one people would start to think more of my images were done so and I wouldn’t want that. Although…I could have said I was inspired by the spirit of Frey and he was lurking behind a cloud somewhere up there.

        You’re exactly right. I used to follow a photographer who casually mentioned one day that he’d ‘removed’ a person from one of his landscapes. On another day, he’d added a few rocks to a seascape. I never felt the same about his photographs after that. I never knew what had been real, and what he’d added along the way.

        I don’t have a bit of trouble with cropping, dodging, or burning, or a little selective sharpening. Color adjustment’s fine. But manipulating an image by adding or removing elements just doesn’t appeal to me. I’ll take your sunrise plain, and just add the eagle in my imagination.

    Pousse-cafes, those I’ve never heard of, but I’m not much of a drinker either. But wow are they pretty! 🙂 I loved your description of the grenadine rising through the tequila though, makes sense. Beautiful sunrise too! 😉
