Morning Colors

It was suppose to be a fairly Cloudless Morning today and I was up at 3:30 ready for a new location I discovered on one of my walks. Walking to this secluded location with a flashlight guiding my way I finally made it, got my equipment set up while drinking my coffee. The day turned out to be extremely cloudy and just did not present the beauty I wanted to share. The mountains that were to the side were heavily covered with low lying clouds and fog which would of been gorgeous if the Sun had been able to come out just a little bit! Better Luck next Time!

Sunrise Along the Edge – Northern Maine

The clouds in Northern Maine along with the mist and fog rising from the water as the sun gently heats the coolness of the water will always create a dramatic sunrise scene such as this photographed by Gary Smith.


My View of the World by Gary Smith

I am always thrilled and excited to get up at 3:30 in the morning knowing there is going to be another Picture Perfect Sunrise! This morning was exactly that. I had my fold-up stool sitting by the waters edge and all of the settings on my camera ready to watch My View of the World come to life!



Morning Mist in Northern Maine

The mist was heavy this morning and chilly! This combination presented such a warm feeling to this area and I had to keep rubbing my eyes to wipe away the blur, but it just did not work… You cannot change nature!


I Believe – Sunrise from Northern Maine

How I believe in God every time I see the creation of another day such as this one! This image is composed of 5 exposures and Tone Mapped in Photomatix. The fog lifting from the ground with the rise of the sun was so beautiful this morning.
