The Third Stop

I understand if you have already grown weary of my early morning pics, but I will probably continue for the present time. The landscape isn't grand, but is is available, and the sites are close by. Doing something keeps me in practice to some degree, even if it is repetitive. Practice is of some value because I think that I almost forgot how to do some things over the long winter. 

These photos are from the third pull-off site (my first time), all viewing the same farm.

As I point the camera in different directions I get different colours. I was drawn by the reds in this section of cloud, very close to the rising point.


Sometimes, I change lenses to zoom in on certain areas, but all of these photos were taken with my wide angle lens. My telephoto attempts were not good on this morning.

Until the crops grow, there is a lack of foreground for all of these recent photos although I did get a little from one of the stops. I am hesitant to wade into the tall grasses at the sides of the clearings that I access, for the threat of ticks turns me into a coward. Maybe I will venture into the grasses some day but will tuck my pants into my socks if I do summon the courage.

Lacking foreground. I decided to put myself into one photo. 

I  may experiment more with this sort of selfie. What I have to do is set up a shot, put the camera on a 10-second delay, and scurry back into the frame. I am not that nimble and don't scurry all that well, but I think I will try again, for I think there is potential.

I love those clouds lit by sunrise...and putting yourself in the photo is a good idea.

My dad loved the delay feature, too. That way he was in the picture with all of us. He always had a smug grin, too.

These are beautiful. I photographed a sunrise on the weekend. First time in several months.

That's gorgeous, but I really do like having you in that foreground for an added interest and focal point.
