On the way to work....just down the hill from my house...I look to the left at the rising sun and see the glow coming through the elm, maple, beech, hickory, walnut trees that comprise a tree line which seperates my condo area fom a neighboring corn field that is still sleeping for another month or so......I stop my Ford Ranger Truck - I grab the camera - fire the shutter - Gotta go - get back in the truck - go to work. I had to get it ! Just had to....I hope you enjoy -
By the way, this is what it looked like.....just a slight adjustment to contrast, highlight, exposure, and saturation..that's it!
I PROBABLY WILL NOT POST FOR 3 OR 4 MORE DAYS - PERHAPS MORE - BUT I HOPE THE SUNRISE IS ENJOYED AS MUCH AS I ENJOY ALL OF YOUR WONDERFUL IMAGES ;-)
** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"
- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
