There’s an old saying, “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in the morning, sailor’s warning.” I assume that there is some meteorological science behind that saying, but more importantly, a red sky in the morning just looks beautiful.
Yesterday morning, as Monica and I were getting ready for work, we both looked out the window and saw a beautiful sunrise coming up over the field. I stepped out into the garage to take a photo or two, and noticed the silo and electric poles were all silhouetted out in the foreground. What a dramatic contrasting shot this would make – and it certainly did not disappoint.
One of the main tenants of photography is called the “Rule of Thirds.” Long story short, it has to do with placing the focal points of your photograph in the cross-points of some imaginary lines. The theory is that people don’t focus on the middle of a photograph, they usually focus on one of these four points. That being said, it is not a hard and fast rule, but it is interesting to see the balance difference. In most of the pictures today, I used this rule, and in one of the pictures I used a more centered approach.
Whatever your preference is, please leave me a comment as to which you think is more appealing and balanced. I look forward to getting some responses and comments.

I hope you enjoy the photos today of a beautiful southern winter sunrise, and that it makes your day just a little “brighter.”
