I was alone when I captured these images but I feel compelled and grateful to share with anyone that might enjoy seeing what I saw one Sunday Morning.
I woke up at 5 am, threw my hair in a bun, brushed my teeth and then jumped in my car heading home to Redding after visiting some friends in Santa Rosa (typically a 3.5 hour long boring drive).
It was pretty dark when I got on the road but I crossed my fingers and toes that I would be at the right place at the right time when the sun came up to capture a nice image. As I drove along I-5 I kept watching the glow in the horizon become brighter and brighter. Nothing was of interest along side the road so I figured it just wasn't my lucky day... but then I came across some rice fields and the sun was glowing behind the trees causing them to silhouette. I pulled over immediately when I saw this:
I knew it would only get better:
And it did...
The sky was really starting to brighten an all the colors were totally illuminating... Blues and purples and orange...
And it fully lit up as an egret flew over the water:
And then I could see the sun perfectly in my lens but lost the brightness if I zoomed in too far...
This is my final image:
I hope you enjoyed them!
