The Pink Sun Rise

It was a photo moment sun rise. First I had to battle the elements (killer cold), getting out of bed, walking on the cold floor, then reaching for the thermostat to crank the up heat. What a rough morning, see….

Once up and about I looked further out side and saw the Sun rising up. The sky was a brilliant pink and green. I raced to get the camera, and threw on my slippers, in my housecoat, to capture the scene with my camera. I used a 30mm lens leaving the camera on automatic, without the flash.

With the air at a  cool -9C, and the sky lighting up with pink colours all around me, I though about doing some close-up shots of the frost covered vegetation. I got some really awesome shots is frost covered plants with the sky blurred out of the back ground. I love doing bokeh shots.

Once back inside, I decided to tweak the last photo up using GIMP. I highlighted the colours up a bit, and increased the saturation and temperature of the image. Because I shoot in RAW, the limits of what I can do with each image is extensive.

Let me know what you think!

ADDED: Oh, by the way, the first shot, of the thermometer, is my replacement thermometer. I lost my original thermometer during the move, back in December. I think the old thermometer is laying on the side of the road somewhere along River Road, Fort Langley, BC. Finding these large size thermometers is hard. I wanted one that is a bi-metal strip type, and has large print, and is fairly opaque so that I can see it at night with the porch light shinning through it from the window.
