A contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Sunrise.
I have rather a lot of sunrises to choose from, some more memorable than others. Do I include one taken at -40° in Saskatchewan? Or how about one with unexpected wildlife showing up?
In the end I went with just two, one from England and one from Canada. But that’s not how I chose them. I picked one of the earliest that I have on film and the earliest that I have on digital.
Sunrise over farmland, Hatherton, Cheshire, England in the mid 1970s. Taken behind my parents house when I still in school. I don’t know what film stock it was. It’s entirely possible that I processed the slides myself in my parents bathroom.
Approximately 30 years later a sunrise on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. The fourth shot taken with an Olympus E-410 and the plastic kit zoom lens that came with it. Really just a test of the camera and lens. A few months later the shot was used in a local tourism guide.
