"Morning Glory"

This was our visual gift this morning as we peered out our hotel window about 7:15 a.m. this morning. It’s one of the prettiest, most spectacular sunrise’s we’ve seen on our travels.  I’m posting it today just because of the shear beauty of the rich colors and hues. I tweaked the image in Photoshop, slightly, so the the brightest part of the sky would fall in the bottom right quadrant of the scene.  With it’s placement at the point in the shot, it enhances the leading lines of the clouds which seem to be racing to meet the sun as it triumphantly makes it’s entrance into the day. Camera specs; Canon 5D Mark II fitted with 24-105mm IS lens at 70mm, F4.0 @ 1/8 second, ISO 800.  Enjoy!  -David

p.s. Hey gang, we’re hitting the road early so I’ll get the rest of the post up later today.  In the mean time, enjoy this morning’s sunrise, stop for a minute or two and smell the roses.  We’ve been blessed with another beautiful day! See you a bit later today. -David


  1. David,, I kicked myself for not going back to my home and getting my camera as this was the same sunrise I saw on my way to work. Oh well, I hope you enjoyed Detroit as much as we enjoyed the seminar!

  2. Hey Dave
    Thanks for stopping in Detroit, the Seminar was fantastic!
    Hoy, Soooo much energy bundled up in one guy!!
    Anyway I saw the same sunrise this morning also riding my bike into work. it only lasted a couple minutes at best.


  3. Great shot of the "D". Thanks for such a wonderful seminar last night. I hope to have your energy and passion for photography for many years to come.

    Another vendor to checkout for email marketing is Mail Chimp They just uped their free plan to provide list with 500 emails and 6000 sends a month. Not bad for only having to place a banner ad in your footer. I have been using their paid service for years. They offer great services and continually create new features. (They also seem to partner / sponsor a lot.)

  4. David-

    Had a great time at your Detroit seminar! You've given me some great tips and ideas. I was really stunned when you said that you had never taken any photography classes- I kinda remember you mentioning you had another life before the camera on the blog. I'm amazed at how many people that I respect as photog's started out on their 'own' so to speak. You have given me encouragement- thanks for all that you have done.
