So Swiftly Does the Sun Rise

Yes, this is nearly the same shot I posted yesterday. It has the same two friendly oak galls nestled comfortably in the crook of the oak leaf..

But the sun has sprung up and is shining glorious, brilliant light over all our 40 acres, even these two humble galls!

    Lisa,
    Thank you :o) I appreciate you taking the time to comment. I am glad you appreciate my photo! That early morning light is what most often draws me out with my camera.

  3. Gorgeous photo–agree with Lisa’s comment on the composition and light. Also, very sharp–did you use a tripod? Simple subjects can make great photos.

      Edna, thank you. I did not have a tripod with me. I usually elect not to carry it with me – although I often wish I had it once I am out in the field. I have watched photographers with monopods at soccer games. I think I might be more likely to actually carry and use one of those… Maybe 🙂 ~Kyle
