2012/038: Bonus – Teaser

Promised a friend that I would post a sunrise shot today πŸ™‚
This was taken on Saturday, January 28, 2012 at 7:01 am. It was a cold morning, only in the 30’s, and of course in my rush out of the house, when I realized that we were going to have a sunrise worth photographing (and was it ever!!!! β™₯), I left my gloves at home. I was only out there for about 20 minutes, but by the time I got back into the car, I couldn’t feel my fingers anymore…. but it was well worth it!
So, here’s a little teaser of things to come… and the pictures won’t even do the real thing justice (they wouldn’t, even if I had a Canon! ;-))

  1. Pretty! I don’t see sunrises like that here, must have something to do with living on the western side of a mountain. I don’t see sunsets very well either because of the tall trees. So see, there are advantages to Texas. πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks, Becky. You’re wrong, though..there are absolutely NO advantages to Texas! πŸ˜‰

  2. The photos never do justice, do they? At least we can get a sense of how gorgeous it was, and this does look like an amazing sunrise!

  3. I never, ever tire of sunset/sunsets. (but I think you know that, lol) Each is so different yet so perfect. Can’t wait to see all the pics!

  4. Ahhh just imagine if it were a Canon.. The depth, the richness, the colours, the details… Heck even the smell of the morning dew, and the freshly cut grass… and… Oh, sorry, that might have been me.. Anywho… Pretty amazing shot, even for a Nikon.. πŸ˜‰
