An another winter morning

… that I witnessed as it began the day with this masterpiece, just spread in front of myself at the balcony.

Beautiful yet overwhelming.

I see this type of complex art painted over sky canvas more in winter season rather than summer.

And that morning assured me that this is why I like Sydney in winter season and I do not mind waking up in the darkness (well, mostly for my cats awaiting for breakfast..).

冬の朝、日の出前に起きるとこんな光景に遭遇する。空いう広大なカンバスに描かれた作品。見とれているその横からどんどん絵が変わっていく。

圧倒されるその美しさ。でもこんな贅沢に出会えるからシドニーの冬が好きなんだ。

Curves and Straights

To be honest, this was not photographed recently but was taken in Japan 2 years ago.

My friend and I stayed overnight at the hotel.  It was her final night in Japan and my first night there.

It was taken at the balcony of the room we stayed.  The skies turned to blush in early morning which was enough for the hint to thrill me to see the sunrise.

Unfortunately the sun seemed to have popped up behind us the hotel building, however, I still enjoyed the view I caught, as lines of curves of the architecture led to Tokyo Bay, lay ahead in the straight line.

This is my (belated) contribution to Tina Schell’s Lens-Artists Challenge #28 – CURVES.

Majestic sky

…that I saw this morning.  The world was began in totally grey and heavy and thick clouds, and it suddenly put some pink shades piping the clouds and turned the world to be bright.  This dramatic sky lasted only 10 to 20 minutes ( i do not know the exact length, but it is how I felt), and quickly disappeared in heavy and thick blanket of clouds.

I was really lucky to witness this magical sky in the morning, thank you Bleu and Shiraz for banging me to get me out of the bed (for their breakfast..).  🙂

Upside down in winter lights

There is a local park nearby my family’s place.  They have the shrine for the goddess of prosperity and growth, and who also is regarded as protecting the park entirely.

I walk in the park when I am at family place, almost everyday, morning or afternoon, ..sometimes even both.

These were caught when I was on my way home from somewhere and was passing the park for taking shortcut.

It was cold but very gentle afternoon, that there was almost no wind that would have stroked the surface on the pond.

This is my belated contribution to Lens-Artists Photo Challenge last month.

Bright afternoon in blue and gold

This was taken at The Rocks, Sydney on last weekend.  Lots of buildings in Sydney city were shone by afternoon sunlight.

The contrast of colors between foreground in gold and background of blue sky was quite impressed to me. I did not have my DSLR with me but my old iPhone did a fair work like below, I think… :-).

It was warm winter afternoon and the crowd around the area was frolic with wines and foods as served by number of stalls at the site. The photo was caught when the light started dimming toward evening. It was a lucky shot, I caught. 🙂

A sky canvas in winter morning

What is good about winter season for me is that sunrise comes in later in the early morning window.

I like summer because day goes long due to longer hours of sunlight yet bright and warm, but often it is hard for me to get up even earlier to catch the beautiful sky art before the sun pops up.  Well, I generally get up not that late, sometime between 0530 and 0600, but it was not enough early if I want to catch beautiful dawn.

Whereas, winter often describes as miserable season that makes people gloomy due to shorter sunshine hours and coldness (and dark, perhaps).

However, sunrise and window of my morning routine fits much better here in Sydney in winter.

My motivation to morning photography is getting to quiet these days but that sky canvas I saw yesterday pulls my chin up for it once again.  🙂
