Happy New Year! Today's Foto Finish post is supposed to be about new beginnings. Here is this week's effort:
We are early risers at my house (we actually slept in till 6:30 AM this morning). I wanted to capture the start of the new year, so I put on my coat, gloves, and scarf (it was 15 F this morning) and walked to the end of the street to catch the breaking dawn. I love seeing the sun come up. It's one of my favorite times of the day to photograph. Not so much in the winter, I'm pretty much a fair weather sunrise photographer! Even so, watching the sun come up, seeing the sky change from black to midnight blue, to just the hint of peachy pink at the horizon, turning yellow orange as the sun gets higher just takes my breath away. Hope your 2011 has dawned bright and clear this morning.
