11.14.2020 Not quite but almost

When I left the house the clouds looked just right to be illuminated from below across the sky.  There was a nice gap at the horizon with several layers of clouds hovering overhead. I thought the view from Mount Pollux would be nice with some of the dead apple trees and hanging ivy silhouetted against the color.  As time passed though, it became obvious that the light wasn’t going to be strong until the sun had crested the horizon.  Not quite my visualized image but it was a nice start to the day just the same.

  1. You seem to get a good sunrise almost every day. Do you know why nature is so cooperative there?

    Beautiful image, Steve. Makes me think of the hymn, “Morning Has Broken.’ 🙂

    We take what nature gives us. Thankfully, even when not what we expected it can still be well worth seeing and photographing.

    • Sometimes settling for second best isn’t second at all. I am not sure my visualization would have met expectations so what I “settled” for may actually be the prize. Definitely worth my chattering teeth. 🙂

    It’s good that you stick around to see what Mother Nature brings you. It paid off with this image! It works best when we drop that “expectation” factor and see just what she has to offer us.

    • That’s very true. I often leave the house with no idea of where I am going or what I might find. But there are times when I have a goal in mind too. It is almost always worth the wait to see what will develop, especially with sunrise/set. Thanks, Lori!

    Picky, picky, picky. Are you seriously complaining about the lack of perfection of this sunrise opportunity? I insist on differing.

    • No, I am not. I was complaining about my visualization not being realized. Easily I could have made images of both that and this but I am quite happy to have made this image and it very well may be better than anything else I might have done.

    Just being out there, feeling things change as the sun rises, must be reward enough, no?
