A Photo a Week Challenge: A Magical Sunrise

magical-sunrise-19001x

Good morning from a cloudy spring day here in Hastings.

Nancy has the perfect challenge for me this morning.  Sunrises.  I have literally thousands of sunrise photos.  But here are my favourites.  Driving down in the middle of winter to Otane means I get to see the most amazing sunrises.  On this day I wasn’t the only photographer around taking photos.

The views were stunning.

The best sunrises just happen on the coldest days.  But definitely worth the early rising for this.

A Photo a Week Challenge: At the Cadillac Diner

At the Cadillac Diner with a 1969 Cadillac de Ville

This week Nancy wants to see our eateries.  So, after much searching my hard drive I found this photo, taken in 2009 of our caddy in front of a Cadillac diner.  The gentleman in the blue shirt is my ex-hubby.

Please excuse the quality as it was taken with an older camera.

I believe the diner is no longer there.  I got food poisoning from eating there too.  That might have had something to do with it’s demise.

A Photo a Week: A Magical Sunrise in the Country

When I read what Nancy’s prompt was this week I knew exactly what photos to use.

Every week when I drive down to Otane it is hard for me to concentrate on my driving.

This day I just had to stop and take photos.  I wasn’t the only one.  There was another photographer who had stopped as well.  I think he was on a mission that day to make the most of this magical sunrise.

I am only 5 minutes away from the country, yet only 5 minutes from the CBD.  The best of both worlds.
