Fire in the Bedroom…

by on Aug.12, 2014, under Life, Photography

Some sunrises are too good to miss. One of our second floor bedroom windows faces east so I’m in the unfortunate (or fortunate) position of being able to see straight away what I missed as far as epic sunrises full of fire and blazing colour go each morning. This assumes of course I’m awake around the time of sunrise – which at this time of year in winter happens a lot since sunrise is around 7AM

This morning my wife (who generally wakes before me) is looking out the window and saying “Wow!! the sky looks like it’s on Fire!!!” – which for me is generally a bad sign…. It’s meant another morning I wished I’d been out there somewhere along Sydney’s coastline taking seascapes with this epic fire in the sky… Given that the crazy coloured light spills into the room and glows off the ceiling and opposite wall it’s a little hard to miss even when still lying in bed 🙁

This one however was too good to waste so I setup my tripod at the window and with the 24-70 (no time for filters or anything) quickly fired off a few frames before the sun crept over the horizon

Another great sunrise – almost missed 🙂
