Sunrise that I rarely see…
It’s always hard to wake up early in the morning and get out for the sunrise… It will get more tricky when it is too cold outside during the winter days. It seems like the trees without leaves adds a bit more character and beauty when mist is hanging around the lake or when morning sun lights up the trees from the side. Drinking a warm coffee and watching the sunrise with the chirping birds is no less than epic that I generally dream and don’t care to wake up, These are some of the photos from my morning walks around the Marsh Creek state park during sunrise, where I actually won over my laziness .
Abstracts created by Ice
Sometimes, chilly mornings of Jan/Feb months will give opportunities to capture ice formations over the water near the shore line on days where temperature falls sub-zero. These are photos that were framed with my telephoto lens. It’s quite interesting and a time passing job wandering close to the lake to find abstract compositions with layers of transparent ice over the water. If you are lucky you will find a leaf or a small branch that got trapped within ice, creating a beautiful abstract subject against pitch black water surface. Once the sun shows up, the icy layer above the water starts to melt down, and it will be all just water soon. I was freezing, but managed to get away with a few cool abstract photographs even though there weren’t any branches or green leaves that I could find inside the water frozen by the ice.
Waiting for the sunset
Here are a few more photos from the Marsh Creek Park that was shot during sunset. What really pulled me into the first photo was the contrast created by the last bit of sunlight over the woods that was lighting up a small patch of yellow leaves left over from fall season. Along with the light, reflections on the water made the scene quite photogenic. When the blue hour started, a flock of Canadian goose just flocked into the lake for me to pack up the day…
One response to “Inspired by subtle light…”
Nice work capturing the reflections off the lake.
