sunrise ~ 04/14/11 ~ at home

sunrise from home
April 14, 2011

I should note that I NEVER digitally alter my sunrise pics. I like how my little point-and-shoot captures low-lighting. It doesn't always match with what my eyes see, but the colors end up being incredible.

Wishing everyone a happy Easter, Resurrection Sunday, or plain old 'nother day of the week!

I wondered about the camera you use. I have both a Canon point & click and a Nikon DSLR and you cannot tell any difference in the pictures when I post them...or at least I can't.

Very nice capture, i have a setting I use for sunsets that works up the colors better.

Thanks everyone!

JL, I use a 7 year-old Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50. Until it dies, I don't think we'll get another camera.

I don't trust cameras to be accurate, but I love the lovely lies they can tell. Your photo is gorgeous, but I suspect reality was even more impressive that morning...

Getting a fabulous sunrise or sunset is a matter of timing and the ability to 'see', not especially the camera.

Our brains supply a lot more detail when looking at a scene.
Even pros manipulate their photos now, just as Ansel Adams did in the darkroom to bring out light and shadows. The computer is a tool like any other means, but it's nice to know your photo-taking practices! Beautiful shot.

James and Sue, thank you for your comments. I'm not really into photography, because I used to have too many prints with my thumb shadowing a corner (back then ordering photos was expensive). I do love having a digital camera so I can take as many pics as I want. It helps when capturing a sunrise that changes from moment to moment. Most days, I simply leave the camera inside and enjoy the experience of the early morning.
