Shivering in the cold (single digit Fahrenheit) under a completely overcast sky before dawn, this had all the makings for a complete bust photography-wise. Then, bam! The dawn sun came up and a red/orange glow spread across the clouds and the water. Wow!
It was gone in a couple of minutes. But being there for those few moments to see and capture an image more than made it worth getting up so early, hiking in the dark and enduring the cold discomfort. It is definitely a favorite sunrise.
Here I am late to last week’s challenge because I happened to already be in a favorite place before this week’s challenge 🙂 . Anyway… last year I had the good fortune to be able to attend the event that’s the subject of this photo. And, as it turns out, this year’s edition has happened this weekend. So, for this weekend at least, instead of the cold, wintry time here it could definitely be a place I’d rather be.
You know those ‘virtual tours’ where your point of view is from the center with you looking out at the subject as if it was wrapped around you? Well this time your ‘Tour Guide‘ has done the reverse: a full 360° set of views of a park gazebo from the outside looking in to give you an impression of all sides at once.
