Yesterday — sunrise

As I was leaving for work yesterday morning I looked out across the field adjacent to my house and this is what I saw:

I took three different exposures using my Sony Cyber-shot.  I always wish I had my Nikon on hand for these shots, but then I don’t tend to get good sunrise or sunset shots with it because I don’t know how to set it up properly, so, anyway. . .

I used what I had and this is what I got.  Perhaps not the greatest compositionally, but it was the colour I was after, anyway.  I think the middle shot is the truest.

I love the sky and want to learn to photograph it so that it comes out the way I see it.  Obviously, I’ve got lots to learn, and that’s okay.  For now I’ll just subject you to my various attempts.

Have a beautiful day!

    Funny, I love the ‘painterly’ quality and etherial colours of no 1!

    Great contrasts, Kath. The second one appeals to me with all its signs of early Alberta morning.
