Dawn to Sunrise - 5 August 2018 (Original Video/Photos)

in photography •  last year 

On this morning the sprinklers did a dance as a new day was breaking. There were thick clouds on the horizon. The rising sun splashed brilliant colors on the clouds just above the horizon.

You are welcome friend.

The 'sky' takes on shades-of-orange throughout 'sunrise and 'sunset, the-colour that offers you hope that the sun can set solely to rise once more.

Nice photography @etcmike
Well done 'step by step.

The golf course sprinklers covered the sidewalk with enough water to allow it to reflect the sunrise.

Have a great weekend!

Hey @etcmike, just a friendly heads up: user @sozib.karmokar has basically ripped off your post title, your words, even your photo information on his post, and has not given you credit. He's only switched out your photo for a different one. Check out his post here:

Thank you for the heads up.

Steem on,

@ etcmike Hello how about we give a few definitions sundown is the period after dusk, or before dawn when all or part of the sky is lit up by reflected daylight, however the sun itself isn't unmistakable over the skyline. The term Dawn to Sunrise is synonymous with the beginning of morning sundown.

Nothing can beat the beauty of the clouds.

What an awesome photos!

Great shots ,beautiful nature

Wonderful! oh you remember me that i have a sunset t somewhere in my archive from Los roques - venezuela. i gonna find it and post it =)

Wow really beautiful pictures. Perfectly taken and timed . Great effort . These days no one have time to look at sunrise or sunset. I don't know what or why sunrise or sunset is so romantic and amazing to look at .

Very beautiful... Best shot

super photos! thanks @etcmike

@etcmike one of the things that I love the most is watching the sunset, relaxing me, making me connect with myself and above all things fills me with melancholy and peace. Your photographs are beautiful, I must congratulate you. I can't imagine what your thinking when you take them. What did you feel? ... A hug.

An interesting thought... "What do I feel while I am watching the sunrise unfold in front of me?"

Every morning is not the same. Sometimes I know it is going to be a spectacular sunrise and sometimes I do not know what to expect.

Most of the time I am focused on the camera settings, checking for birds in the air, and trying to avoid taking pictures of bugs landing in front of my lens.

But the moments in between are precious. The beauty of a sunrise only last for a little bit. At times it unfolds slowly and sometimes it changes every second.

When I am thinking about how majestic the scene is, I sometimes wonder how many other people are seeing it.

Watching a sunrise or sunset is a 4-d experience. It changes in all dimensions. A person watching from one vantage point will not see exactly the same scene another person sees at another vantage point. That makes it a very personal experience for each observer.

I usually thank God for waking me up to see the beauty of his creation unfolding in front of me. Each sunrise and sunset is a free gift of beautiful art to the world.

Thanks for making me think about it.

Have a great week!
Steem on,

@etcmike Jusy like you, when I observed a beautiful sunrise or a beautiful sunset or a starry night, I think of how small I am in this universe full of wonders and I also thank God for letting me see it. Certainly for each one it is a different experience and it will make us immerse ourselves in our feelings and thoughts. Thank you for sharing such beautiful photographs. You had a beautiful artist that day drawing for you in the sky. Happy week!

Very good images. Please upload some from Nikon camera. #amazingmorning

Fantastic view it shows beauty of nature..

@etcmike, So Amazing, first picture itself showcasing the magical effect and these kind of colour formations is an great inspiration for sure.

In my opinion, if we carefully watch the first picture then it will going to reflect as the Sun is dancing ball and when sun landed in center part we are watching an suppressing essence.

And watering pictures are awesome and that green essence making the pleasing effect and for sure walking on that grass can give healing effect.

So, keep up this beautiful work and literally nature is magic and time to time it create an new Art.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

Really beautiful moments. I can imagine the final minutes of the day! Thanks for sharing.

Nice photography
