Frozen Sunrise

May 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

So what is pretty cool is that where I live is surrounded by water. There are three man made lakes within my town and two more within a 5 minute driving window. Through the edge of town there is a creek that runs and meets up with the bay. One side of my town is lined by the bay so really no matter where I wanna go, I can reach water. When the winter comes, the water freezes. I have started getting intrigued by this frozen water especially the bay. Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, I like to sit by the bay and just listen to the waves crash. There is something o so soothing about the sound that it makes. It is also a good spot for capturing the sunrise, the boats, and even star gazing. On the 4th of July I can sit there and watch the fireworks that go off on the barrier island. 

So this past winter when the water was frozen I woke up early and caught the sunrise. 

This morning was so peaceful. I was the only one at this location and considering the water was frozen, there was a stillness in the air. I took my camera and carefully walked out onto the ice to capture some pictures. Don't worry I was extra careful making sure I walked on the ice that was thick. There is something exciting about walking on the ice and knowing that underneath is feet of water. I captured the sunrise and used the small wooden fixture as a subject. 

I look forward to next winter. Maybe I'll go out again. Maybe I will get more color. How cool would it be if I captured more of the red clouds. Till then, I'll keep the memory, the stillness, and the beauty that surrounded me.
