A Deck Of Clouds

My family lives in the countryside of Texas with lots of horizon and big skies. One nice thing about it is having more photo opportunities with nature.


One morning this week, I was treated to an extra nice sunrise. I stepped onto my front porch to let the dogs out when suddenly my eyes were caught by the glowing orange ball peaking out from a blue-ish cloudy sky.

Immediately I did a 180 back into the house to grab my camera (iPhone 7), thinking I had maybe 60 seconds of that golden moment before the sun was hidden behind the cloud deck.

I jogged over to my farm truck, stood up on the bed, and snapped away. I tried to frame the landscape nicely and expose the image in a balanced way.

Yeah, that means I just tapped on parts of the image I wanted to focus/expose on and let auto-HDR handle the rest. It was a snapshot moment worth getting.


Hopefully the results are appealing. There’s so much texture in the clouds, and I like the orange sun contrasted with the blues in the sky.

Enjoy!


When was the last breathtaking sunrise you saw? Shout out below or write to me. Thanks for reading!
