The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #170

Sometimes you have to get up early......

to capture that photo.

I'm always grateful for people who are willing to get up early for the shots that I would probably miss!


I once had a shadow—or did she have me?
My shadow and I could never agree.
I would say something, she’d say the reverse;
Our arguments flared, my lips I would purse,
Refusing to speak to her anymore—
So my shadow got up and marched out the door!
I have not seen her from that day to this—
That’s one stubborn shadow I surely don’t miss!

I agree, some of the best shots can be found in the early morning. Love the clouds in your picture. Thanks for sharing!

That is a breathe taking sky.
Thank you for getting up early and sharing the beauty of the morning.

I was up early this morning, but my sky wasn't quite as lovely as this.
Very nice!

Getting up early is easy for me - I have always done so! It's staying up past 9 pm that's hard!

I'm sure glad you got up in time to get this shot - it's beautiful!

Beautiful shadow patterns!

Late visiting for SSS, here's some more shadow shots, have a great week ahead.

I can relate to that! I was up at around 3am one morning last week to catch the lunar eclipse. We are quite mad! Lovely photo and well worth getting up early for :)

Beautiful indeed! I'm not much of an early-riser but on occasion I've caught that morning light and it's just amazing.

Thanks for playing 6WS!
