Take Tuesday #5: Sunrise

Shakti Dove
Theme: Sunrise

When I first saw this week's theme, I thought "Sheesh, Shakti & Nicole! Why would you guys pick that!?" Sunrise is so frickin early and all I could see in my head was me in my pajamas, standing in some random field, taking blurry pictures cuz I'm half asleep and freezing...

Luckily, this morning was nothing like that!  Even though I slept smooth through my 6am and 6:30am alarms, I did regain consciousness around 7.  (Definitely woke up confused- had no idea where I was lol)  Anywho, I rolled over to snap a picture of the sunrise through my bedroom window, but it was shatty... So I got up, put some warm clothes on (no blurry shiver pics for this girl!) and went out on the balcony.

I'm so glad I did that, because there were birds sitting on the power lines. I'm really proud of the shots I snagged this morning.  I wouldve had more, but grown-up life called and I had to go to work.

My favorite shot is the last one. The huge flock of birds flying across the sun is too perfect!

So go ahead and visit Shakti's or Nicole's blog to see what other people's sunrises were like. I'm really enjoying these Take Tuesday prompts.  If you haven't joined in, you should. Try something new :)



  1. Gorgeous shots! So nice to have the birds in there. I love the last one with the whole flock.

  2. OMG! The last is my favorite as well!
    Just so you know - I didn't pick this weeks theme, Nicole did AND she didn't even post sunrise pic. She did a SUNSET bahahaha. She and I have the slackiest post ;)

    1. LOL! I'm glad I did the shoot, because I think starting the day off on an artsy tip made the rest of the day pretty good. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

  3. So lovely! Great capture of that flock of birds.

    And per Shakti's comment, kudos on actually taking a sunrise photo and not a sunset photo... lol! ;)


Thanks for your comment ^.^ They make my day!
