I roll out of bed, grab my camera and start shooting.
If there's time, I dash upstairs to my workroom and take advantage of the slightly higher point of view that raises me and my camera above that tree that obscures part of the horizon -- on this day I got there just as the sun poked its head over the Blue Ridge.
There, that's better. More sky in this next shot.
You see, matters are complicated a bit by the bird feeder recently installed in the window I prefer to shoot from. Now I can only open the window from the top and then only about eight inches.
So I have to hold the camera above my head and shoot blind, then check the display to see how my aim was. In picture number three, I just barely got the sun.
There were some other oddities but I liked these last two. I think, however, I'll treat myself to a little step stool so that I can look through the viewfinder when shooting out this window.
