Sweet Sunrise

The day before yesterday I was up at dawn to do some fishing with one of my best friends in this world.  By the time we arrived at our destination, the sun had already made considerable progress in its rising.  When my canoe was ready to go with fishing gear, I saw that the sun was heading behind an unusual, single, cigar-shaped cloud, and I waited until it was behind the cloud to shoot the three shots I needed to make this HDR image.  Tom, a most kindred soul, did not in the least mind the minor delay.  Nor did I.

    Beautiful capture of a tranquil moment. Hope the fishing was good. :)

      The fishing was great–it always is. And the tranquility lasted for several hours before the wind started to come up. And we shared the little lake with a pair of loons!

  3. Glad the fishing didn’t get in the way of photography! I hope the day turned out as good as it looked at the start

    “Calling occupants of interplanetary craft …….”. The reflection makes this seem all the more otherworldly.

    I had exactly the same feeling when I saw the cloud!

  9. You are my hero. I know I will always see perfection when I come to your blog.

  10. So beautiful … and something speaks out in this image. Maybe there WAS an interplanetary craft behind that cloud. :-)

      Who knows? It was certainly not your average cloud, and may well have been hiding something in its midst–on the other hand, the cloud itself may have been the craft. I’d like to think so, and I’d like to meet them!

    I’m a believer, too, and have been pretty much as long as I can remember. One of my fondest hopes is that I’ll still be around when the existence of others is finally confirmed.
