The Sunrise In Different Shades

I was walking on the Bronson Avenue bridge over the Rideau Canal one morning last month. There was a fine snow falling, and it filtered the light of the rising sun in an interesting way.


A few days later passing through Brewer Park, another sunrise caught my eye. I photographed it in several different settings: normal, black and white, sepia, aqua, and negative.

  1. We have now the same amount of snow here.
    Wintry landscape is not much difference between the black and white picture .. :) Lovely photos but I like most the original.

  2. When I open the computer by the morning, always I see you have already written your Ottawa daily photo.
    You live in a wonderful and beautiful city.
    Happy weekend.

  4. Super colours in the first sunrise William, as far as sunrise and sunsets go mother nature's colours win :)

  5. Great photos! Amazing different settings change the impression of the image so dramatically. When I visited Anthelope Canyon, tour guide recommended to use Chrome setting. It sure brought up the beautiful colors the canyon had :-)

  6. Well, my friend, I like all of these variations. But what the hell are you doing up at the break of dawn day after day? I always thought cold, snowy days are for sleeping in! :)

  7. I like the aqua, but have to admit that the last one is interesting!

  8. Your last four photos are very cool. Changes bring about some interesting aspects of the photo. Some things can look very different.

  9. @Orvokki: I figured a little experimenting with the camera seemed in order!

    @Tomas: well, I do set these posts to go at midnight my time, so they'd be up and running when anyone in Europe is getting up in the morning.

    @Marianne: the only time I see sunrises is in winter when it's up later.

    @Grace: no sunrise or sunset is ever the same.

    @Tamago: thank you!

    @Lowell: only at this time of year! When it's summer and the sun is rising before six, I'll never be awake!

    @Sharon: thanks!

    @Norma: I thought so!

  14. I don't see the sun rise very often!

  15. I don't catch many sunrises either. These are very creative.

  16. It's fun to experiment though I'll probably never really get to do that with a sunrise - unless I'm travelling!

  17. @Red: especially in negative.

    @VP: I figured some would just go for that.

    @Gracita: thank you.

    @Country Gal: thanks!

    @Karl: well, as winter goes on and the days get longer, I'll see very few of them until late fall!

    @RedPat: most of the year I don't.

    @Jackie: thank you!

    @Ciel: sunrises are so easy to miss if one's not out yet!

  19. Most attractive interpretations of morning light. i must admit, I love the subtle colours in the first photo.

  20. That's a really good idea William, the only thing is I'm spoiled for choice...ah decisions, decisions...

  21. The peach one and the gold one are terrific.

  22. @Inna: it is the first time I have experimented with the settings, but I have done so again today with a sunset.

    @Tex: thank you!

    @Gemma: I was glad to have a camera along on both occasions.

    @Geoff: I can find choosing hard.

    @Mari: thank you!

  23. I like the black and white and the negative versions. The negative reminded me that it's been a very long time since I've seen one of those. And it sounds like - voluntary or no - that you're an early riser.

  24. You've been playing in a nice way with the photos, but the first one is still the most beautiful, I think.

  25. The first photo is beautiful. I like the different effects and how they look on the other images. It's good to be different, never know what you'll find or like.
