Cold Morning Sky

Looked out this morning and there were some nice red colors just before sunrise. Grabbed the camera and a tripod, popped out the door and set up. It was 5 degrees below zero, didn’t grab a jacket, hat, or mittens, as it was just outside the door and only gonna be for a moment at a time…

Took a few pics. Decided a jacket and hat would feel good. Hands were still cool, but can’t work the camera with mittens on. Did learn, while moving, that an aluminum tripod and bare hands in below zero temps aren’t a good combination.

Here are a couple of the pics:

  4. Your photos are incredible! I love love love the colors. I hope the cold wasn’t too unbearable. Did you do any photoshop alterations or is that 100% natural?
