Morning Meadow Bouquet – Etsy Print
A meadow full of flowers, just as the rising sun hits, is a great place to be with a camera! I had to get down low (and a bit wet with dew) to capture this photo of backlit flowers and grasses, and the mix of focus gives a bit of depth to the scene.

Clear Morning Skies Above the Campground
It has been my experience that it is much better to wake up in your tent with the sun shining than to hear drops of rain on the surface of the tent. And I would guess this is what most would think as well. This photo was taken on one such sun-shiny morning as most of the other campers in our group were still sleeping, or perhaps just laying in bed not wanted to get up.
Choppy Ocean at Dawn
This sunrise was a welcome sight after a couple days of windy, rainy weather and very heavy surf. The ocean was definitely still pretty rough, as evidenced by the choppy waves in the distance, but thankfully things started to clear up for our last day at the beach for our vacation.
A Bit Orange and A Bit Round
The orange glow of sunrise can feel so invigorating. I felt awake and alive after this ocean sunrise back in July, which certainly helped me as I went on a 5-mile fast run right after I put my camera down.
During our 5-day family trip to Glacier National Park more than 10 years ago, I saw some great sunrises. Each morning, I quietly crept out of the cabin in which we were staying, wandered down to the edge of Lake McDonald, and enjoyed a Montana morning in all its glory while sitting on the shore. On the last morning of our stay, I think I was able to convince most everyone to get up and see the sunrise for themselves. That is how I got this shot of my sister staring off into the distance as the sun popped out from behind the mountains.
Sunrise in Orange and Pink
I love ocean sunrises.
This ocean sunrise had it all: calm waves lapping on the shore, a distant orange orb rising from the sea, a column of light dancing on the waves between the sun and I, a wide-open sky with pleasant gradations of orange, pink and blue, and even eyelash-like shadowy rays above the sun created by a cloud. I’m glad I had decided that day to get up early for a morning run…of course, it was more my marathon-training schedule that made that decision for me!
Sunrise at the Dock – Etsy Print
Right now, I’d love to jump in a kayak and go for a sunrise paddle around this Vermont pond. Unfortunately, I’m not in Vermont, and it’s just about winter, so I’ll just have to stare at this photo a little longer to remember the wonderful sunrise on the lake.
