Do you live in the city, far away from any nice spot in the nature to take sunrise photos? Read and see that no matter where you live, you can join us in Caroline’s sunrise photo and health challenge and enjoy all the benefits of the challenge with us. How was your morning today? Here it was raining today. It was the same yesterday, but the evening was full of sunshine so I decided that it is perfect day to do some preparation. I went to Dublin city centre yesterday in the evening to pick location for my sunrise photoshoot. Believe me when I say that street photography wasn’t talking to my creative soul very often until I saw sunset in Dublin city yesterday. I hope the picture below will tell you how much me and my kids enjoyed photography with sun in the city yesterday.
Few days ago I arrived back home from my holiday and I have to say that I miss the mountains, I miss the forest which is near to my parents house and I miss all the nature that was so close to me every morning. Ireland is known for its rainy days and last two weeks the weather just proved that sunny days in Ireland are really rare. It was sad for me to see many cloudy morning without sunshine. Last two weeks I had many sleepless nights and I was not feeling well. I tried to do exercise everyday, but terrible headaches made it nearly impossible for me to write anything on my blog. I have many old pictures of sunrise that I could use, but I decided to skip the whole sad and negative two weeks and write about the fresh memories and positive experience that I had yesterday. I hope that all the photos that I share with you today will tell you how beautiful day it was and how much I enjoyed taking these photos. (Finally something positive after two weeks of sadness and pain.)
Something for lovers of black and white photography:
Should I start creating postcards?
Don’t forget that during your morning walk you can take pictures of interesting objects with the morning sunshine in the background or sun light reflecting on things around you. The challenge doesn’t have to be only about taking sunrise pictures that look like the perfect landscape photo. You can improve any of your photographs by adding some interesting sunshine and sunlight in it.
During my preparation walk to pick interesting spots for my morning sunrise photoshoot I also took these two pictures below. They are not typical landscape photos, are they?
The sun light is making some magic no matter what time of the day it is:
When your morning is cloudy and without sunshine, you can just walk and find interesting spots for your photoshoot and wait for the perfect morning to return there and take the best sunrise photos. Caroline’s sunrise photo and health challenge is not only about taking the perfect sunrise photo, it’s about your journey to achieve your goals, it’s about challenging yourself in many different ways to become more healthy and happy. The perfect sunrise photo may be the cherry on the top of the cake for you, because when you get one really beautiful photo, it will brighten up your day.
My exercise of the day 13 on Tuesday 16.8.2016:
