Whew! That Was Close.

Thursday morning, I had a close call. I almost missed this.

It was one of those mornings when I went for my camera as soon as I opened the curtains. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about photographing sunrises and sunsets, it’s that speed is of the utmost importance.

When the sun is rising or setting, it seems to be in fast forward.

These pictures were all taken in less than three minutes. The changes are subtle, but they’re there. 

If I had opened the curtains a few minutes later, the sky would have looked entirely different.  You have to be quick when the sun’s in fast forward.
