Following The Rising Dawn

Gloucester is a portion of Ottawa, taking up the southeast part of the urban area; before amalgamation, it was a city in its own right. I was out this way back in late September very early one morning during that rough spell I was having- I ended up walking along a road and photographing the morning as it started to present itself.

  6. Love dawn/dusk photos. They remind me of what humans experience that is alike. We tend to hyper focus on differences.

  9. Great walk! It's often recommended that a photographer take a walk and you will find photos. A walk is great when you don't feel well.

  10. @Janis: I've always enjoyed dawn and dusk shots. It's easier to get dusk shots though!

    @Norma: so did I.

    @Halcyon: very much so.

    @Sharon: very slowly!

    @Cloudia: indeed.

  14. I don't know what the residents of Gloucester are like but you might want to avoid walking the streets at night. Interesting photos though.

  18. @Beth: my cameras don't really catch the moon well. I've got it showing up in some shots down the line from a day earlier this month.

    @Tamago: that it was.

    @Jan: definitely.

    @Wiggles: okay...

    @Catalyst: it seems like something of a bedroom suburban community. Though there are a couple of places here I'd love to photograph, but can't- they're side by side neighbours, and both are headquarters to the two Canadian intelligence agencies. I'd be under surveillance from the moment I aimed a camera.

    @MB: that's true.

    @Bill: thanks!

    @Whisk: thank you.

    @RedPat: oh yes!

  19. That should have helped lightened the mood even though the blue is so strong.

  20. I love early mornings, but it sure is cold these days! I hope the beautiful views helped you through your rough patch. I've enjoyed looking back through your fall colour series. You have some great colours in Ottawa this year!

  21. You captured some very deep and beautiful shades of blue. Nice!

  22. Mornings are great for wandering and pondering. Thank you for sharing the sunrise with us. Hope your rough spell has smoothed out.

  23. Beautiful. I admire anyone that can get up early enough to witness the dawn
