Chandler Day 142: Early Sunrise

DSC03499Today was the last day of vacation and the last day for me to catch the sunrise. I had missed it every other morning, so I had to get it this morning. I woke up early and headed down with Hannah, Hillary and Josh. Hillary and Josh wanted me to get photos of them together before we left so it worked out well. I got a beautiful sunrise and got to take photos of them. And then they asked for the stereotypical, holding hands on the beach, photo. So I snapped it quickly and moved on. And then I looked at it and found it had turned out to be a beautiful combination.

 

Chandler Day 132: Time to go Home

DSC03067I woke up this morning, after a night of rain, to this beautiful sunrise. I had a lot of fun camping and birding this weekend. I’ll definitely be coming back next May. I got up, listened to the Orioles, Yellow Warblers, and Blackbirds calling and started packing up so I could make the long drive back home. It was a lot of fun and I’ll miss the birds, but I’m ready to be back home in Indy.

Brandy Day106: It’s a Good Knot

image

Unusually drawn to this photo. It’s one of those that I knew I was taking, but didn’t know the capacity of it at the time.
Not sure why THIS one photo sticks out to me out of the 100+ photos I took on this beautiful Wednesday. Many would argue there are others far better than this.
This was shot just as sunrise was peaking well over the horizon. The air was chilled. People rushing off to wherever.
I was up at 6am. Another restless night of sleep or lack thereof. I was OK with the tradeoff.
I think its the knot I’m drawn to. Right in the center. Holding it all together.
Photo was shot in RAW with no edit.

Brandy Day100: Life

image

Very little sleep, with a restless mind and heavy heart. I was up early for work, but early enough to catch the sunrise. Threw on a hoody, shoes & glasses and out I went. Sought out the nearest east facing field and watched. Wondering what today would hold. This is what I found.
Happiness, love, peace…life. Life happened right before me.

Chandler Day 66: An Early Morning Drive

DSC01901It was a quick shot. It’s not a very good shot. I can find a million flaws with it. But it’s the sunrise. I took it very early this morning on my way to Marian. Normally I don’t see the sun rise, so seeing it this morning was very nice. Every now and then I like to get up very early. It’s so quiet outside. It’s still and calm. And the roads are empty. The drive is great. You drive and drive and every minute the sky is changing colors and then all of a sudden the sun lifts over the horizon and you see this big ball of fire coming up and the day has started. It’s such a common thing. Happens every day. But when you take the time to look at it, it’s pretty amazing.
