Seven Day Nature Photo, Day One – Half light before dawn

I have been nominated by my friend Gilly, the very lucid Gypsy, to take part in a challenge of a photo per day for seven days, of anything from the natural world.

Meanwhile, over at WordPress, Krista says “I love evening half-light: that time just before dusk when the sky still holds light as darkness creeps across the land.” and challenges us to come up with an image of half-light.

And over at Paula’s site, we were challenged to show her a natural phenomenon that arouses our curiosity.

Blue hour before dawn

So, for today I shall kill three metaphorical birds with one stone…Here is an image of half light at that time just before dawn, when the light is blue (before the sun explodes across the horizon in a red gold glow):

I don’t usually take part in the sorts of challenges where one nominates another person to take part, but just for once…. so I would like to nominate the immensely talented Adrian aka Chillbrook to take part in the 7-day Nature Photo Challenge. Adrian takes the most stunning images of rugged nature, both at home on the Cornish coast and in the wilds of Iceland. No problem if you are far too busy for this, Adrian!

  1. The most perfect time of day. (Capturing that pregnant stillness before it all bursts into light and sound – good job!)

  2. A beautiful time of day, filled with waiting and anticipation, Sue.

  3. Shall we call Gilly our muse?? I won’t see this kind of dawn – I wake to neon in my city eyrie. I shall savour your early awakening into the blue time and your photographic skill in capturing it.

    • Sue

      Yes, Gilly can be our muse, Meg! I rarely see the dawn, and almost never in England! My blue hour was taken in la France Profonde – away from urban lights! I do get to see lovely sunsets from my kitchen window, though

  4. Not bad! Killing three birds…nicely done too!

  5. Nice way to deal with all three themes, Sue. Like you, I rarely see the dawn these days, but all those years of shift-work showed me my fair share.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Thanks for joining in, I don’t often do these challenges either, but nature won me over. Well done for ticking three boxes in one hit!

  7. You did a really great job, Sue. Love your photo for all three challenges. Adrian is a very good choice indeed. I hope he finds the time to participate.

  8. Very moody with a dash of mystery. I like it. Thank you, Sue.

  9. Well, if you’re going to start killing birds on here…. 🙂 🙂

  10. A good start to your 7 days. I am also nominated by Gilly and plan to start next week it is hard to fit it in with existing posts so you have done really well combining 3, I may take a leaf from your book when I get going on the challenge.

  11. Sue, you have been very busy with challenges … and done an outstanding job with them all. I wish my “sorry ass” could handle more sitting down.

Over to you...
