Sonora Desert Sunrise by Dave Edwards

February 2021 - Sonora Desert Sunrise

About the Image(s)

While in Arizona I'm one of those early risers. I get up early and head out for a hike. I often bring a camera along just in case. As I started my hike the sunrise just turned into wonderful colors. I pulled out the Sony 6000 mirrorless camera from my backpack. For some reason, the camera wouldn't focus properly. So I pulled out the reliable iPhone from the backpack and captured a few images of this sunrise. A minute later the bright colors were gone. Thank you iPhone!

Stunning.All is in the right place. The horizon at a slight angle, the repeating verticals of the saguaros, great sky.   Posted: 02/02/2021 17:02:21

Thanks Jerry, I have the iPhone 11 Pro. Planing on making the webinar on Wednesday morning. Being in Arizona I think it starts at 8:30am Mountain time.   Posted: 02/05/2021 18:24:05

Wonderful Dave. What model iPhone do you have. If you have night mode like on the 11 or 12 it is so easy. This is a keeper. Jerry   Posted: 02/04/2021 09:48:12

A beautiful composition Dave. I like how the cactus are silhouetted against the sky and that there is just enough light in the shadows to anchor the vegetation without being distracting.   Posted: 02/08/2021 13:44:22

Really nice image. The colors are great. I like the angle of the terrain, too. It adds interest that a flat horizon line would not. I can echo the comments of the others. Nice shot.

Stunning photograph in every way. Brilliant sky against Saguaros cactus desert sentinels. Awesome photograph and early morning bike ride a win/win combination.   Posted: 02/15/2021 12:06:56

Absolutely stunning. You couldn't have planned for an image like this if you spent hours.   Posted: 02/19/2021 05:46:59
