This week’s photo challenge (early bird theme) proves not to be an easy feat.. It took 3 mornings, before a satisfactory picture came along.
On Sunday morning, I woke up to the sounds of thunder. The skies were grey with flashes of lightning.. Extremely terrified of lightning, I buried myself under the covers and tried to sleep..
The next morning (Monday), I woke up early and headed out. After taking several shots, I realised photography for early morning requires specific camera settings.. (Auto mode doesn’t work!) The lack of skills and preparation showed in the images. Feeling discouraged, I decided to stop for breakfast.
That evening, I did some research on blue hour photography.. Blueberry gave me some helpful tips too.
I woke up this morning and tried again. Thankfully, the weather was perfect and I managed to get a picture of the morning light. Yay!
All the efforts put in was worth it.. After doing the photo challenge, I discovered a new-found love for the blue hour.
Thank you, WordPress for such a memorable challenge.. and thank you, Blueberry for guiding me through this challenge. 🙂
