I’ll tell you how the sun rose, —
“A ribbon at a time.
The steeples swam in amethyst,
The news like squirrels ran.”

-Emily Dickinson

Sunrises reminds us that there is an opportunity to do better again. Each morning we greet is a fresh new start that begins with a bright-colored horizon, birds humming, dew slowly caressing leaves and a great sense of calmness.

I am  engulfed with so much appreciation  by the number of photos shared by our members who are one with us in savoring the beauty of landscapes.

Above: Rutland Sunrise – By Colin Mill

I wasn’t actually expecting to be up in time for sunrise on Tuesday morning but I was and the light of the rising sun reflecting off the rescued church on Rutland Water was a great reward for such an early start.
The sunrise itself wasn’t much to speak of, you can probably see the layer of low cloud at the horizon which obscured the early sun but as the sun rose above the cloud and the hill behind me it bathed the already warm sandstone in this glorious golden light. It’s a shame about the blue-green algae in the water as it spoils the reflection a little.

Terrigal Skillion back in June. After a run of stunning skies in April, May and June, seems like we’ve had bluebird skies on the east coast for ever …

This photo was taken in the high desert near Deming, New Mexico.

I might normally have slept right through this, but it was a cold morning and I wanted to get out and about to warm up.

Above:  Schwabacher Sunrise – By Steve Peters

This was the sunrise view from Schwabacher Landing on the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. Just a few minutes before this shot, three mother ducks and about 25 little ducklings swam out onto the river from the bank, completely wrecking the mirror-like stillness of the water with a thousand chaotic ripples! WTD! But fortunately they swam off to the left of the frame and eventually the water returned to its glassy calm. Whew! I worked my setup spot to make sure to get that clump of white wildflowers in the frame at bottom right. –Steve

I shot this photo in the beautiful Lavender fields of Provence, France this July on a photo tour. I can still smell the scent of the flowers and hear the bees waking up to greet the day. Such a beautiful place to visit.

A small wave at the beach at sunrise, with some ICM… I find it relaxing for some reason.

A cold morning from December, but I love the flare…
Looking at it now, the boring foreground needs darkening.
Best, Dominic.

I was at Pisgah Forest last year and went out to capture a sunrise. We were all facing the opposite way of the picture I have attached, waiting for the sun to rise and light up the mountain, we turned around and saw this behind us. The sky was on fire with color. very little processing done to this image. Canon 5D Mark 3, 1/80 second, f5, 100mm

I captured this image on Christmas Eve morning several years ago, after we had a light dusting of snow overnight. I used my Canon 1DS MK3 and took a series of shots with the intention of stripping them together to make the pano. format image that would have a high degree of resolution for large prints. This location is in the Flint Hills of Kansas, USA. I live within about 30 miles of this location.

Above: Mornmon Row – By Steve Swope

Sunrise on Mormon Row barn, Grand Teton National Park
Arrived at approximately 5:30 AM, already about 50 photographers waiting for the sun to rise, temperature near 20 degrees F. Waited almost two hours for this shot, 5 brackets, and one, 1 or 2 second exposure, can’t remember, for the sky. Using Nikon D850, Nikkor 24-70mm 2.8 VR, ISO 100, 1/60 for exposure and +2 +1 -1 -2 brackets. Second camera, again Nikon850 and 70-200mm 2.8, all same exposures for different composition. All at once the sky just lit up.

Sunrise at Start Point (England). I had to get up early for this one, luckily not far from where I live. This is a blend of 2 exposures.

Above: The Lone Tree – By Ian Thomas

Hi there, this image was taken at Llyn Padarn Llanberis in the Snowdon National Park North Wales uk.
Temperature was just 2 degrees celsius but luckily no wind.

Was using the Canon 5d sr and 24-70mm f/2.8 @24mm iso100 but can’t remember the shutter speed.
I keep making the 142 mile journey to photograph this tree at sunrise in the hope of getting a better/more dramatic shot but so far no luck. This image was taken on the 8th Feb at silly’oclock and I hadn’t even had a cup of coffee, something that really bothers me.



Above By Martin Jones

Taken on my morning walk in Mundaring, Western Australia. I didn’t have my cameras with me so I used my phone. The only adjustment was a tweak of the exposure to slightly darken the sky in Camera Raw.

Hi! This is my first post to the forum. Exciting!
This photo was taken in French River, Prince-Edward-Island, Canada. It was taken with my cell phone.
F stop 2.8, speed 1/120th. It was taken on November 1st 2018. The fields in the foreground yielded potatoes that year. Some were left over and anyone was welcome to take whatever they needed. I love PEI people. The are very friendly and always ready to help. In the background, we can barely see the ocean.

My Sunrise is a random selection from the many thousands of stored photos that I noticed I took several bracket images at the time thinking I would merge as HDR in Photoshop, taken in spring of 2017 on a beach trip to Lincoln City Oregon as a break for my wife’s radiation treatment. I imported 5 images in Lightroom and photo merged as HDR, made a few adjustments and reduced size for this upload…

I took this in Sorrento Italy and it felt like magic.

This is an image of the Bascillica of Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. I took a photo workshop there one weekend and we were able to photograph the inside and outside of the Bascillica. We started outside at 6:30 AM and roamed around the facility until it was time to leave (around noon). Great architectural elements and I recommend a visit. This was a 3-shot bracket but I don’t remember the settings – sorry.
