XII Light on the River

XII - Sunrise, Sunset

As a photographer, I like to think that sunrises and sunsets are de rigueur - the one image anyone can capture. You are given the landscape and the color, what is the art in that? But on the river I found dawn and dusk to be a thing of wonder. I'm not sure if it was the vastness of the water, the mystery of each morning, or just the intoxication of the light.

Whatever, I found myself drawn each morning to the east and each evening to the west. The colors seemed to be more vibrant. It was if the sky was more creative.

The yellows and golds were more intense.

The horizon seemed more vast.

The colors were layered in the sky.

And the progression of the colors was like a trip across the spectrum.
