The church is situated on a slight rise in South Amherst and it is one of my “panic” go to locations when I am late getting out of the house. I’ve posted a couple of images from here in the past and most likely will do a few more in the future. This past weekend, with our quite hot temperatures and moderately cool nights, had three mornings in a row of gorgeous dawn skies. Monday’s sunrise was not quite as spectacular as the previous two but very satisfying just the same.
There was just a hint of ground fog so I went for the sky as the larger element of the composition. I also made a tighter portrait view of the pine tree but haven’t yet processed it.
It occurred to me to turn around and look at the rear of the church which I have photographed before in a very similar composition. I like that there are two weather vanes, including the traditional crowing rooster. They disagreed on the wind direction which is often the case. I think one of them might need a squirt of WD-40.
Red sky in the morning and sure enough, the rains came and stayed for a while. I think we got about 2″ which was quite welcome.
