I love sunrises. I have tons of sunrise photos.
I took these two photos with my iPhone at 7:15 a.m. 04 January 2018.
Five minutes later, I used my DLSR for these two photos.
I was reminded of the song Time Changes Everything by Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys.
These photos are just as my cameras rendered them; I didn’t change them at all.
When I went out to photograph the sunrise, I heard some ducks on the pond. The black-bellied whistling tree ducks objected to my presence and took flight.
The mallards, however, decided I was harmless and stayed around.
I was out and about fairly early one morning and saw these clouds with some nice coloring. I was lucky and found a tree to add to the scene.

Zombies with Cameras
Josie drank coffee as the darkness waned. She’d been awake for hours.
She’d discovered an online insomniac community. Some couldn’t go to sleep right away, some woke up in the middle of the night. Others, like her, woke up too early.
They photographed what they saw when they wished they were sleeping. A collection of their photos, “Zombies with Cameras,” hung in a gallery, with the opening ceremony that night.
The photographers hadn’t met before; they’d recognize each other by their “Sleeping is Overrated” buttons and insomnia-induced lifeless movements.
The sun rose. Another long day – and night – awaited.
