Morning Sunrise - 17 August 2018 (Original Photos)

in photography •  3 months ago

On this morning I was not the only creature up to watch the sunrise. Perched on top of a utility pole is a Red-Tailed Hawk watching the horizon too.

The forest fires in the western United States are adding to the red tint of the morning sunrises.

Photographs taken on 17 August 2018.

Dawn to Sunrise Photographs in Sequence

Dawn: The period of the day when light begins to appear in the sky from the sun.
Sunrise: The time when you first see the sun in the morning.

To give you an idea of the when the photographs were taken I am adding a T-time. T-0 is sunrise, T-10 is 10 minutes before sunrise, and T+5 is 5 minutes after sunrise.

This is a representative sample of the photographs in the video. The photos below span a 27 minute time frame.

Great photography and this is very beautiful sunrise and natural moment I appreciate your valuable content.. wow very amazing camera I like this post thanks for sharing this post

Good day..A morning means a new day, a new arrival. Sunrise photography is very beautiful. Fresh and natural Sunrise.
The morning sunrise is very good, it refreshes the mind. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Damn nice shots/clickz again. Especially you'v show it greatly. these all photography are prosperous....

Actually When I think about that sunrise that I woke up to that morning, I just feel like I got as close to nowhere as I could get, and found out that it was more of a place than anywhere I’ve been in a long time.

However, spectacular view...
Really yo're a great photographer...
Thanks for sharing this all extraordinary shots...

I do not compare the beauty of beauty, and if I write anything about natural or photography, then I think the best response support is available. Everyone likes to take pictures with my natural likes and more.I love nature

Awesome pic 🌈

Hi @etcmike .....I like it

It's great photography.I liked a lot of beautiful pictures. Your pictures are really awesome.

Amazing photography....keep steeming.

Really extraordinary sunrise photography which facinated me again and again. So keep pushing, you are becoming a GREAT photographer!

IMAGINE: somewhere in a galaxy far, far away there is a species that does not fight. A species that is at one with its surroundings. A species that is not shallow and does not judge a book by its cover. A species that does not desire control over its fellow beings. A species that works together without selfish motives.

This is where humanity has gone wrong. We are incredibly lucky to have this planet - the place we call "home". Competition in society breeds so many problems. Whether the competition is innate, or whether it is manufactured is up for debate.

Appreciate this life you have. Appreciate your environment. Appreciate one another.

Stunning sky indeed! Love the photography.
Thanks for sharing @etcmike keep moving forward.

Your Natural photos was always awesome... i really appreciate your photographs.. beautiful....

Awesome photographs @etcmike.

Beautiful photography. It's increases the energy level in the mind if you focus. If we pay obeisances to the Sun that will increase your age and keep you healthy.

Hello, @etcmike. It seems that not only the sun and the clouds want to pose for you, the hawk does not want to miss that dawn and does not want to be left out of such a good photograph. Congratulations and a hug.

Great photos!

Nice air thanks for sharing beautiful sunrise photography.

This is mind blowing amazing!
This is absolutely gorgeous!
Nice captured!

Actually when the 'sky' takes on shades-of-orange throughout 'sunrise and 'sunset, the-colour that gives you hope that the sun will set entirely to rise once more.

Nice photography @etcmike
Well done 'step by step.
Steem on!

Beautiful photos! Impressive scenery. If looking at the sunrise through your photos makes me happy and energized, I don't want to imagine how it could have been live and direct. These are the magical moments in which one thanks God, in spite of everything, for being alive, thanks for sharing such an extraordinary landscape, @etcmike!

Great photos...looks like the hawk might have had a better vantage point, lol. Where exactly did you take these if you don't mind me asking?

I love your photo collection here. I am always up just before the dawn and love watching the changing colours in the sky on and above the horizon.

I do find myself at times getting lost in the magic of the changing sky colors.

Beautiful photography! That's an awesome way to start your day! I wouldn't mind waking up early if that's the view that I will see everyday!

Thanks for sharing this with us and have a wonderful day!

your photography never any one beat

Amazing photo graphy !!

Posted using Partiko Android

@etcmike, i want to say that, this view is different from all for sure because it really reflecting as deep red colour.

And this time it's reflecting as the sky is fired up because that specific red lines and spot is creating fire like effect.

And yes, for sure it's reflecting as the, fire effect is affecting the sky and environment and may be that's why we can see an strong red essence.

Great to know about the Red Tailed Hawk and for sure it was invisible in this Red essence.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

Amazing Sunrise,where is the shooting location?

I am shooting through one of the windows in my house located in eastern Nebraska, United States.

Have a great weekend and great week!

Beautiful photography

Nature is beautiful in all ways. you are blessed to click this image.

Nice click. Waiting for more!!

That sequence is amazing. Love how the sun looks.

It is not only a photography but also a certainty of nature. And Non other is beautiful then Nature.

your photography was always awesome... sunrise is really amazing...

Awesome post I have ever seen on steemit....... What a lovely scene. Good job
Keep it up!!

Lovely sunrise pictures. I would have loved a closer zoom on the hawk.

Beautiful to check this post out some stunning shots from there :D

The photos look very nice after editing.
You always have a place to pic
But the place is very good looking from far away .

Wow ... amazing photography

You had company in the hawk! Amazing views, nothing more humbling than watching the sun rise.

I can see you have changed the shutter speed from 6 sec, 1/2 sec and then to 1/5 sec. May I know the reason ?

Posted using Partiko Android

·

Yes, I changed the shutter speed according to the light meter. The light meter in my camera shows me how changing the shutter speed can be used to maintain the proper light balance.
In the view finder I can see the light meter reading. I select the setting I want to maintain and as the lighting changing I adjust the shutter speed.

The Canon 7D has an auto-mode where it maintains the meter setting I select. I learn more by doing the adjustments myself.

Have a great weekend!
Steem on,
Mike

Wow great to know, bdw for the newbie which camera you will suggest. Id Nikon 5300 is good enough?

I used to have an advanced film camera. When digital photography started, I put down photography for a while (years) until I could afford an advanced digital camera with similar features.

If you are serious about photography then I suggest buying a camera that will let you push your limits while also giving you a beginner's mode (full-auto).

I have had my camera for 7 years and I am still learning about all the features and how to use them.

Have a great weekend and a great week!
Steem on,
Mike

I agree that taking in beautiful views and photographing them is relaxing.

Since I usually wake up right before sunrise, photographing the sunrise is a wonderful way to wake up.
