Dawn of another day - Jeff Hamon Scenic Fine Art Photography Regina SK

September 07, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Lately I've been having problems getting a solid sleep at night, and waking up wayyyy too early.  However, sometimes it can send me off into a field or down a grid road or to a lake at those wee hours of the day. Then I take my frustrations out on my camera and tripod...I mean let the peaceful dawn calm my jitters!

I was out early a couple mornings this week and here is what I was able to watch, and also capture for you the lucky viewer who likely slept in! :)

Wascana Lake Sunrise Panorama

The above image is a 4:1 panorama so if you're thinking about a print - GO LARGE because the height will be quite small in comparison. That was just a fantastic start to a day, the colours just kept on coming and then WHOOSH - gone and sun was up and on with the day.

Sometimes you have little photographic accidents that result in something neat. This was such a case as I was running a long exposure on a timer and moved the tripod as the camera clicked.

Sunrise Streak

This morning I was up way too early and drove around looking for a spot. Then I remembered a trip back from up Prince Albert way and wondered if the sun would come up anywhere in the vicinity of a tree and a couple grain bins that I passed. Sure enough... it was worth the trip this morning.

And finally, after a train had passed and I crossed the tracks to turn around on the grid road and head back, I had to pull over to get one last shot once the sun was up and illuminating the grain field nicely.

But here is what I wanted to show you today - the sunrise so you could see for yourself... Enjoy!
