Morning Trinidad by FramedByNature Morning Trinidad by FramedByNature
Canon Digital Rebel XSi
18-55mm kit lens
3 shot HDR (-2, 0, +2)

The cliffs of Trinidad, Colorado are warmed with the first rays of sunlight for the day as the sun peaks above the horizon. Mom and I got up at 5:30 and walked up to the Ave Maria shrine for this shoot. I'm a teenager, and it was summer. That is unbelievable =D Anything for a photo I suppose :)

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

What hit me the most about this shot were the fantastic orange highlights that just seem to draw you into the photo. Everything is well balanced and composed, with great detail and a stunning setting. There also seems to be a perfect balance with the road, focal mountains and background mountains as well.
All in all I think this is a fabulous shot! Great work, Evan. :worship:

Thanks Will!
I'm glad you noticed those background mountains, they were pretty distant... real tough to bring out. Only thing that irks me is the color of the sky. Was hoping for a vivid sunrise in the sky, but there weren't any clouds. Lucky for me, the light bouncing off the rocks provided enough color :)

Well, it can't always work out perfect. =p
What counts is that you did a great job with what you had available to you at the time.

5:30 you got up? Wow...Lol. I sleep until 10am, now. One year, I could never get to sleep until like 5am, and eventually it got worse, and I was always up until like 2pm, and THEN went to sleep. And another year, no matter WHEN I went to bed, I would be up at 3pm, even if I went to bed at like noon. I have odd sleeping patterns...Now it is semi-normal at least. 11pm-midnight is when I go to sleep. Look at me ranting :O Great pic! Simply amazing. How long have you been taking pictures for?

Haha! That's pretty crazy. The worst I've ever gotten was maybe going to bed at 3 and getting up at 1 :laughing:
I've been taking pictures for a little over 2 years :)

The sun /reflecting?/ off of the rocky range in the background is beautiful!

Lovely shot. (; Good for you, too, waking up so early for the sake of art! As a fellow teenager, I applaud you! :faint:
