It’s my thing.

By M Davies   /     Nov 20, 2011  /     Hobby-ish  /  

I'm normally up at the ass-crack of dawn every morning, whether I want to be or not. I get up around 5:30 during the week and my internal clock does not allow me to sleep in on weekends.  In the chaos of the morning grind…i try to find a few moments of zen before starting my day.  My zen is watching and photographing the sun rise.  I like the cloud formations and colors of the sky right before the sun comes up, and the golden beauty in the first few moments that it rises from the eastern horizon.  Call it cheesy, but it's my thing.  Those of you that follow me on Facebook or Twitter know that I try to post pictures (so long as the weather and my schedule cooperate) several times a week.  I'd like to think that they are motivational….at least for me….  How can you be grumpy and pissy when the sky looks like this? 

Here are some of my favorites from the last few weeks….Enjoy!  BTW…These photos were all taken with my iPhone 4.  You can click each picture to expand it to full size.







Last but not least….today (11/20/11).  Kinda cloudy.

I also put together a video of some of my archived pics from last year, which you can watch below:

    You are getting great pictures with your camera phone!  😉 
    I haven’t taken many pictures of the sky myself….but lately I do find myself paying more attention to the different hues of color in the sky during the different times of the day as I try to learn more about photography itself.  Did you know that the first and last hour of sunlight during each day is called “the golden hour” because of the photographic effect that can be achieved due to the quality of the light?

    I had no idea.  I would love to learn more about photography though.  Mike Burnside is the expert in that realm.  I wanted to take his photography workshop at Hillside Farms in September or October…I forgot when it was and then forgot to sign up.  I hope he has another one soon.

    This time of year is excellent for seeing interesting atmospheric effects. As I was coming back from Scranton yesterday I saw the most amazing sun dogs, including the brightest one I've ever seen. Being up in the morning, you've probably seen a few sun pillars, too! Those are amazing.
    I have sunrise, sunset, and other sky photos here
    and here

    I know what a sun dog is, but what is a sun pillar?
