Captured Island Sunrise Beauty

Another day, another sunrise, another beautiful capture!  It’s morning on the island and sunrise greets us with beauty as it chases storm clouds away. Each sunrise and sunset at the island is unique and why we continue to capture them and never tire of them.  It makes getting up before dawn an anticipated pleasure.

THE DAWN’S awake!
A flash of smoldering flame and fire
Ignites the East. Then, higher, higher,
O’er all the sky so gray, forlorn,
The torch of gold is borne.

The Dawn’s awake!
The dawn of a thousand dreams and thrills.
And music singing in the hills
A pæan of eternal spring
Voices the new awakening.

The Dawn’s awake!
Whispers of pent-up harmonies,
With the mingled fragrance of the trees;
Faint snatches of half-forgotten song—
Fathers! torn and numb,—
The boon of light we craved, awaited long,
Has come, has come!

Mystified By Your Colors

One cannot explain how beautiful the colors of the skies are with words and how those colors appear to the eye of the beholder as they change from moment to moment.  I do have my head in the skies from early morning to late blue hour evenings and especially at oceans ends.  It is no wonder that I love HDR Photography (or Digital Blending techniques) for the ability to capture and enhance those captures with amazing tools to create photographic beauty.  It seeps into one’s soul and desire for wanting more and why I am often at the seashore to relish in it.

Go West!

Our travels will once again return us to the mid-west and western National Parks to capture their summer beauty.  This image is from our early days of our photography in film when we crossed the country via the northern and southern routes.   We are converting all of our slides and film to digital thanks to the experts who do those conversions and thus retain our libraries of film and slide images.

Does the road wind up-hill all the way?
Yes, to the very end.
Will the day’s journey take the whole long day?
From morn to night, my friend.

But is there for the night a resting-place?
A roof for when the slow dark hours begin.
May not the darkness hide it from my face?
You cannot miss that inn.

Shall I meet other wayfarers at night?
Those who have gone before.
Then must I knock, or call when just in sight?
They will not keep you standing at that door.

Shall I find comfort, travel-sore and weak?
Of labor you shall find the sum.
Will there be beds for me and all who seek?
Yea, beds for all who come.
