Sorry, I just can't help but share my sunrises with you. Its when I see the sunrise and the sky is glowing and bright that I know I'm going to have a GREAT day.:o)
The sun does make us all feel better, its a known fact that more people get depressed in the winter than the summer because there isn't as much sunlight. So if its dark at your house now, look at my sun and smile! :o)

I am!! 4 more days and my Husband will finally be off his ship and home again!!

Hi Donna

Tou are right this is a spectacular sunrise - well captured with good colour.


I really like the crispness of your silhouette Donna, and the color is superb. It definitely bodes well for the rest of the day. I'm not sure I like the photo melting into the black frame. A tiny, tiny gray line to separate the two I think might be effective.

Nice composition and color, you captures wonderful moment. Thanks for sharing and good luck to you

Hello Donna,
Great colours and effective silhouettes!
A well composed presentation, and I like how the water reflects light so we can already see some details...
A fine morning mood!

Hi Donna,
I agree with you, sunrises are so beautiful and proclaim a good day usually. What a stunning shot this is - outstanding colours in the sky and the FG silhouetted trees give a fabulous effect. Excellent POV to portray this fantastic scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Donna,

A nice image of the sunrise over lake Erie, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.

Normally a sunrise/sunset with a clear sky does not move me as much as one with spectacular clouds in the mix, but you've managed this one very well with the water, shore, and trees in the mix. Very appealing! Good job!

Dear Donna
Another wonderful sunrise shot,
Great exposure,composition and POV,
Superb shot,Welldone,friend.


May you as well be richly blessed today this Sunday as I have just come via TV live the Mass at Notre Dame. A wonderful picture of the lake in its glory. It suffers tremendous storms which come when one is unaware in summertime. Many have been lost..and yet my father and I went so far out we could barely see the shoreline. My fathers ashes rest there now...You bring a tear to my eye this AM as I have seen my father through your lens...and not far SW of this is Fairport Harbour where all of my wifes maternal parents and grandparents lived. Wonderful and colorful capture.


Hi Donna,

Your sunrises are beautiful and I like this one very much.
Good silhouttes, beautiful colours and a very relaxing mood you've captured here.
Thanks for sharing!

Greetings, Nel
