Quick Sunrise Post

I’ve been a bit slow with the posts lately, so here is some easy but beautiful filler. This sunrise was already in full swing when the alarm went off this morning, and fortunately the colors lasted long enough for me to wake up and run down and get the camera.

I’ll be honest with you: I had to edit the colors on this photo by toning them down. Our camera underexposes bright skies like this, and the photo is much more saturated than reality. So I lightened up all the colors to make it as close to what I remember seeing with my eyes.

Intense glowing yellow and pink clouds with patches of light blue sky

    I am actually married to someone who takes saturation out of a sunrise photo!!! I occasionally tone it down too, but only if someone has a green beard, or blue hair… usually I do the opposite though – I like bright colors. (But yes, Andy’s sunrise colors are very realistic, and I would not have noticed the photo as being desaturated, had I not read it and seen the original)

    So we didn’t get Halloween colors from pumpkins, but instead from the sky way out there on Kauai. Never would’ve guessed.
