May farm sunrise – 1

A few weeks ago I posted May farm sunset 1 and May farm sunset 2. Just to prove that I can do without any sleep whatsoever, I got up an hour before dawn the next morning and set out to do the opposite: take photos in the Golden Hour just before and after sunrise. As a result, you can see, through the steady procession of the images, that the sun was getting higher on me as the shoot progressed.

The first moon shot (there are four moon shots in this set) was taken on the way to Pomfret, CT and is on the floor of the same valley shown in the latter photographs where you can see the mist surrounding the buildings. The water shots were taken at a reservoir in a small community between Pomfret and Woodstock, as were the farm field shots at dawn.

The last shot was taken on the drive home, long after sunrise, but I was lucky enough to catch the sun backlighting a tree that looks very autumn-ish, but was actually very spring-ish, if you can pardon my English-ish.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

  1. Wow, the view down the hill towards sunrise is simply exquisite! I won’t ask you what lens you use, because then I’ll have the irresistible urge to go buy one ;). Lenses are addictive, I’m sure!

    • When I first started a friend told me that there are two terms that rule the photography world:

      1) Glass rules! (and)
      2) To be a photographer is to have the condition of GAS.

      The first means that no matter how many lenses one has and their quality, you want more, because the lens is the second most (behind your brain) important piece of hardware you have.

      The second is not the type of GAS that embarrasses you at dinner parties but stands for Gear Acquisition Syndrome: much wants more, and heaven love the photography equipment manufacturers, they keep coming up with stuff to want!
