  17. Thank you all, for your kind and encouraging comments. I was very pleased with these photos, except for the fact that I completely forgot to lower my ISO, as the sky got lighter. There's just so much to remember and little time to think when the sun comes up so FAST! I would have preferred less noise, so hopefully I have learned from this and next time will remember to keep my ISO lower.

    K Soucy, to answer your question....the first 5 pictures were taken right out my back door from my deck and then I walked a little ways down my driveway to take the others.

  18. This is an excellent series of shots. I love how you can feel the dawn coming, you can sense the sun on its way.

  19. Great photo series Debra - beautiful colour. I like the fact that you're playing around with the non-automatic settings on your camera! Have you tried the exposure compensation feature yet?

    Cheers,

    Dave
