I was outside early (enough) a few mornings ago. I saw the setting moon. So….
This first photo I took at 6:34.
I decided to self-inflict myself on the photo. So I used a railroad tie fence post for a unipod. I had to run back and forth a few times. In rubber boots. I was getting winded. Here’s the photo I chose in that particular batch:
I decided I should also get some rising sun pictures. So I went trudging off in the other direction. First, though, I went into the house for a bit. Among the things I saw, this:
I went back out and kept chugging east. But I didn’t get far before I heard geese honking.
I whipped off a quick shot before they vanished…and missed focusing on them:
Finally, I made it out into the other pasture. Since the sun had not yet risen, I shot another skyward salvo:
At 6:56, this shot:
At seven o’clock, while I waited for the sunrise to show me the sun, I took a cellphone photo of my PhotoWeapon on another UniPod (this one helping hold up the wind sock pole):
At 7:04, there comes the sun, folks!
By the time I shot that last one, it was 7:07.
Then, shortly after five that evening, I remembered one of my morning ideas: Get Some Day’s End Photos Also.
Alas, I was too late to get the full moon rising. This 5:09 shot will have to do:
I wasn’t able to get the sunset. Which is a good thing, since this post is suffering from Dreary Photo Overload.
(I meant to post these the same day I took them: November 2, 2009.)
