Mount Mansfield September Sunrise Four

Mount Mansfield September Sunrise, Four – 5:34 am

This is the moment before the sun shows itself.

More light reflects orange on the fog.

Foreground fields appear.

Astronomical twilight is a recorded memory. Nautical twilight’s eyes are wide open. And Civil Twilight will soon evaporate into pure light.

By this time, with the light rising so quickly, my own sense of time has slowed to moments. But blink too slowly and I may miss the changes. Breathe too quickly and I might disrupt the beatings of my heart.

The sun is about to rise….


Other Options & Ideas
My Amazon affiliate marketing highlights for this post and the other five in this Mt Mansfield Sunrise Series is the camera I bought this spring from Amazon before our trip to Vermont, the Canon Powershot G9 X Mark II Compact Digital Camera .

Featuring a one inch sensor, and the option of going fully automatic or manually to the degree I need for my photography, I like both its size and feel. Plus it has a neat retro look that reminds me of the old film cameras “way” back, lol! 😊

I also like the macro setting and ability to shoot deep night pictures.

With a decent size memory card I keep my camera set to capturing images at its largest file size, about 20 MB.

But check out my other images in the Mt Mansfield Sunrise Series and see the shifts of light through the three twilights to daybreak!
