One of the perks of living on the Southern Plains is the fact that we can actually see the horizon — which means we are able to enjoy breath-taking displays at sunrise and sunset. Heck, we even have restaurants here in town with all booths & tables facing the west — giving their patrons an unobstructed view of a lakeview sunset. And, as sunset approaches, the employees of the restaurant march around, clapping and encouraging everyone to take a moment and enjoy the sunset. I like that — pausing to celebrate something simple & beautiful that happens everyday.
My favorite sunrise picture started out as the shot below — taken at our local Braum’s.
With some careful cropping and a little additional ‘tweaking’ — it’s the beautiful sunrise shot I was going for — without the dumpster storage and parking lot!
Yes — that’s much better !
