Progression Of A Morning
Last weekend I met some friends before sunrise for a shoot at a nearby spot. We knew the moon would be setting just after sunrise and when we got there it was hiding behind the clouds. It was dark out and I liked the way the bright moon lit up the cedar silhouettes across the bog. And when the moon disappeared, the sun slowly bathed the area in morning light. The scene changed rapidly from one moment to the next. A pink stripe appeared to the west for a short time before the sun made its way over the tree tops to light up the scene and welcome a new day. An old shack warmed itself among the marsh grass and Pickerel Weed. Then, when the sun climbed higher we turned our attention to Pineland wildflower gifts. It really was a wonderful morning!
