Creativity is a type of learning where the teacher and pupil are the same individual.
This past Saturday morning I rose before sunrise and drove out to a favorite location to enjoy the morning sunrise. I like this location for several reasons. There are some isolated trees in a farmers field that I enjoy working into some images. There are two wetland/marshes where I can find plenty of red-winged blackbirds and yellow headed blackbirds feeding on insects during the early summer mornings and evenings. On this particular morning I had walked through an open fence and into the farmers field about 20 feet, setup my tripod low the the ground and started pressing the shutter. The sun was just starting to crest the horizon when I heard a vehicle stop just behind my car. As I stood up I noticed it was a police car. I grabbed the camera and tripod and walked over to meet him. He was friendly and just checking on my car which was parked off the road and gave me a warning that I was on private property. I quickly went back to my previous location in time to shoot the sunrise. It is always good for us to turn around and look to the west just as the sun begins to rise as the sky can present us with beautiful pastel colors.
Not to bad a way to start a Saturday morning. Had to get up early but well worth it. There is a feel of Fall in the air. Needed a light jacket. Next on the list, relaxation time at a local coffee shop then off to the farmers market.

A starburst comes through a tree as I watch the sunrise from the patio of a local coffee shop. Nice way to start a morning.
Sunrise from a couple of weeks ago and worked in HDR Efex ProI. My parents have been out visiting and I sure enjoyed the time with them. They are headed back today so I pray for safe travels. I do hope everyone has a great weekend.
