Nature's First Green is Gold by pullingcandy Nature's First Green is Gold by pullingcandy
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:
Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.


Nothing Gold Can Stay - Robert Frost

Sunrise on farmland, March 13th, 2010.
My very first serious attempt at nature photography (thanks for ALL the tips guys!).
I woke up at 5:45am and forced myself to go and catch a sunrise.
My friends *dennissnider and =KSPhotographic inspire me an awful lot with their landscape photography, and I've been dying to try my hand at it, even though I'm stuck in the prairies :)
Enjoy~

Great shot. Love how the sky renders a marble effect. I actually wrote a high school essay on this very poem...the last line seems to suggest the impermanence in nature as well as life.

fantastic colours! how could you get that sky? neutral density? long exposure? and good work, with the watermark, I almost didn't notice about it :D

To be totally honest, this picture had nothing special done with it or to it. It just came out like this. Sometimes, here, where I live - we get the most brilliant skies, and sometimes I am lucky to capture them. No long exposure, no neutral density - just a bit of luck and a gorgeous morning. :)

I'll add my voice to the chorus and say this is really lovely. I like your horror vibe but this sunset also makes for a great picture. :)

You know, it would be probably more than perfect if I could throw fake blood on the sun and then snap its picture :) But I can't, alas.

Nature is astounding - I'm glad you like this, I like it too. I was very lucky to be in the right place at the right time to catch this.

If you can figure out a way to throw fake blood on the sun, let me know. That sounds like an awesome picture :pumpkin:

I agree, nature is astounding. Pics like this are needed to. It's like I listen to a lot of songs about people getting murdered but sometimes I need to listen to a beautiful choral piece. Always a balance. :)

Thank you AGAIN, Mr.Empty. I like the sky too - it was really awesome to see it like that, don't think I ever have before.
