Almost makes getting up at the crack of dawn worth it

Click to enlarge (it's worth it)
.
I fell asleep on the couch the other night and woke up at 6:00 with a really horrible backache. I was about to crawl upstairs for a few extra minutes of sleep in an actual bed when I happened to glance out the window and decided it would be better to go for the camera instead.
.
This shot was taken on my patio and is straight out of the camera. All I did was put the frame around it. Mother nature did all the photoshopping on her own, meddling would have been completely superfluous.

Visit Skywatch Friday for other looks at this glorious sky we all share.

See? There was a reason you fell asleep on that couch!

Hope you back gets better, but what a fabulous photo!

Mojo said...

Definitely worth embiggening! And even worth a backache (well, okay, I realize it's not my back we're talking about so easy for me to say but still...)

Isn't it cool when all the editing is already done? I love when that happens.

Love it when the sky displays such a strong glow in the morning light. I would crawl out to take this too! Beautiful shot!

Sometimes it is worth getting up early.

Daryl said...

Thanks for going for the camera! That is amazing.

Leora said...

I'm in awe over the beautiful view you have looking out of your window.

Glad you got up to get the camera. Hope the back ache dissipates.

I followed your advise and clicked it. The image is so much more delightful in its larger version. Thanks.

It was definitely worth it!!

Tarolino said...

I agree that editing would have been quite unnecessary. Nearly worth the backache :P
Well at least for us other sky watchers. It is a enchanting image.

Thanks for dropping by in my blog and commenting on the moon, which actually was the sun :) Others made the same assumption too.

Thanks for your visit and kind comment. Yours is a wonderful landscape too.

Like you, I do not crop or Photoshop my images.

Robin said...

Well, I do do some artistic cropping or photoshopping, particularly on my more "artsy" shots, but not usually on landscapes, and this one was definitely as nature intended it to be :).

Rose said...

Wish I could get that kind of view from my back yard! It is a glorious shot.

Carletta said...

Loved the sentiment of 'mother nature did all the photoshopping.'
This is such a rich golden color - a beautiful sunrise!

Great colors and good photo.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Mother Nature is a lot better at photoshopping than I am.

I also love yours screensaver on the laptop on your banner. It looks like a golf hole at Southern Hills here in Tulsa.

Thanks,

For a shot like this I would get up at crack of dawn. Wonderful, wonderful sunrise, it must be a good day when it starts like this.
BTW you have a lovely island in a very tidy kitchen. Thank you for your visit, Robin.
