Winter`s morning glow

By fotobee
Tulbagh South Africa.

Taken a few day`s ago on our early morning walk to the local Farm Dam. I have included this photo because of the astonishing, limpid clarity of the air. It was completely calm, and had been for a few days, to allow virtually all the dust particles to settle. Also, the beautiful, all encompassing golden colour was everywhere, and is as photographed without the addition of any filters at all. It is a companion photo of yesterdays Four Canary`s. I doubt whether the sun was fully risen, as my back was to it, in contrast to yesterday`s, which was photographed full into the orb. The only processing was the enlargement, and the placing of the subject and slight sharpening.

I am slowly getting into photography again, and rediscovering the untold joys of capturing these ephemeral scenes forever. Without photography, they will be gone from the mind forever more. The memory of them, however brilliant they are, slowly dims with passing time, until they are but a faint distant memory.

Many thanks, Bernie, for your wonderful award yesterday, for my four Canary`s on a wire. Thanks to everyone who looked at, voted for, and commented on them.

Keep well
