Just as you awake...

Just as you awake..., originally uploaded by Lily-Wren.

This was taken whilst on the road travelling through Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

Taken early one morning as the sun was rising. I just loved the silhouettes of the street lights and signs and the contrasts of lines with these and the traffic lights.

I had to be quick though as we were driving and had no time to stop!

First Light

First Light, originally uploaded by Lily-Wren.

The same morning as the previous shot, however, this was a few moments earlier. The photograph and colours are practically 'as was' and had to be seen to be believed! The Autumn Minnesota sunrise is just so stunning.

Unfortunately my lens isn't big enough to get a closer shot of the single Loon bobbing along on the water. I love these birds, so much so, I bought a really tacky cuddly toy that makes the haunting Loon call - never thought I would become such a 'tourist'!!

Beautiful sunrise captured over Jack-the-Horse Lake, Minnesota. One of my favourite photographs taken over the last couple of weeks....
