My confession is that I am much too wimpish to get out for morning photos in the winter. I would rather get up at 5AM or even earlier in summer than go out at 8 o'clock in winter. This was especially true during our time at the cottage when temperatures sometimes hovered around -35° on both scales. But the cottage does have windows, and AC does have a camera. And so, I present Cottage Panes.
I guess this ↓↓ is my fave of the lot, for the framing, beautiful sunrise with the magentas, and how the processing turned out. I actually hadn't been aware of what was going on, but Sue spotted the glorious light when she got up. I was lucky to get the shot as it clouded over in remarkably quick fashion.
Through the same window (over the stove) on another colder morning when it was totally frosted over. ↓↓
But wait . . . there's more. This is an HDR from 4 or 5 exposures if I recall correctly. It's not that one needs to do HDRs much anymore to capture the tonal range, but it still comes in handy from time to time. Besides, I like to not give up my HDRing skills, such as they are, without a battle. ↓↓
I often get up too darn early for my own good. One morning, I took this reflection before the sun arose. This is also an HDR. ↓↓
Those were all through or of the dining room window — or at least the window over the stove as seen from around the table. This ↓↓ is through the kitchen window over the sink. gotta love the flares from the misted portions of the window.
Finally, this ↓↓ is another early-morning reflection through the door that leads to the porch and the front steps, with my coat hanging on the hook.
I truly hope that this post does not leave you in too much pane. I guess the putrid pun might, however.
