Weekly Challenge #464 "Early one Morning"
Posted By: StephenHampshire, 07-11-2019, 04:06 AM

Hello, and thanks to Kerrowdown, I am hosting this week's challenge.
It is Summer in the Northern hemisphere and although the days are shortening and we will soon be a-wassailing, at the moment the sun is rising early, so lets see your dawn/early morning shots. So as not to exclude our Southern friends, you can have frosty mornings too!

Some examples

Lets see that soft morning light!

The Challenge will run from now until midnight (British Summer Time)Wed 17th July 2019, I'll judge and post results the following day. Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Sunrise was 4:59AM this morning, so I went into my library to find a photo taken at the more civil time of 6:16AM. Taken from a hot air balloon just after liftoff.

Just a Moose, Trying to Find his Place in the World

I grabbed this shot of Moosey the Moose on our return trip from Banff. We went out in the early morning to photograph the Bald Eagles fishing over Lake Coeur d'Alene and he seemed to be deep in thought...

Grass Dew Bokeh

This is about as close as the Old Kerrowdown gets to early morning... it's still a good while before the sun burns off the morning dew.

One of the advantages for having a second place in North Africa (for health reasons obviously) is that you get stunning sunrises.

What a morning greeting.

Several years ago we checked into the Fallsview resort and casino on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. The next morning I was blown away with the morning sunrise from the 27th. floor. A great memory.--charliezap.
