This week, Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge showcases photos that start or end with the letter D, and I could think of no better example than dawn. (Yes, I know–I am pretty clever!) Here are some of my favorite sunrise photos showcasing how peaceful it is at dawn; the first one was taken at the top of Diamond Head Crater in Oahu. It is on my home page usually, but I took the liberty of lightening it up a bit to see more details. Since it’s Hawaii, I did not have to edit the colors.
The next photo is of a sunrise in a completely different state, although just as peaceful at dawn.
I always enjoy a good sunset, too. Dusk is a very peaceful time of day.
A little further south from Seal Beach, I always find the most peaceful sunsets. I usually don’t have to edit their colors–they never fail to amaze me.
And, in the middle of the day, I find the most tranquil places to hike. The Redwood forests are among my favorite places to hike in California. I wrote about them in detail in an old post. I’ve taken the liberty of editing one of the redwood tree photos further for this post (now that I’ve learned more about editing!); its stature and shape is truly astonishing.
