Photos of a Sunrise, Start of a New Day

Real Estate Agent with Vision Quest Realty WV0026375


One early January morning in 2013 my husband and I were driving to Northern Virginia to visit relatives.  It was a great time to use my new Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphone camera and take some photos of the sunrise.  As my husband is driving on Interstate 81 North, I was snapping away as the sun was rising.

The above photo is an entry for the ActiveRain 2016 Photography Contest. Real Life Category. I love how the clouds look as the sun is rising for a new day. The sunrise almost looks like a spaceship. What a way to start the day to see the joy of a sunrise. Below are some other photos that were taken on that beautiful morning.

Photos have been re-sized and/or cropped, but are otherwise untouched.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphone has an 8-megapixel camera and has an advance camera feature I like ..... using best photo and the bird shot feature, I am able  to capture the perfect best snapshot  The camera rapid-fires eight still pictures and then you pick favorites with help from the phone's Best Shot recommendations.  I now have the Android Edge 6, but the Galaxy is my favorite.

You did a great job with these pictures. I took some with my Samsung S7 the other day of a sunset at the dog park. They didn't come out so well.

There is nothing like a nice sunrise to set the world right once again.  I use to work at an office, that was east of my home along Highway 50.  In the morning, as I headed in the direction of the Sierra Nevada Foothills, I'd see the most amazing Sunrises.  And, in the evening, headed back West, I'd see glorious sunsets in the Sacramento Valley.
