Solitary windmill stands post over the recently harvested grain field at dawn. Bright highlights and long dark shadows show the rolling Colorado prairies bring out the terrain relief under the fluffy layers of monsoon cumulus clouds exacerbated by the massive smoke and ash from forest fires across the Western States.

Ubiquitous high power electric lines span many miles across the eastern Colorado prairies to bring electricity to the burgeoning populations and isolated farmsteads. Low angle post dawn sunlight creates dimensionality with long highlighted ridge lines and deep shadows.

Found an area of Colorado high prairie with rolling hills and infinite grain fields and used the post dawn light and shadows across the scene to develop the depth of the terrain. Monsoon moisture drawn off the Gulf of Baja and smoke from Western state forest fires help form the cumulus cloud banks.

A late blooming sunflower drinks in the early morning sun just north of Denver International Airport.

Sought to limit my pallet to primary colors for this pair of early morning sunflowers just north of Denver International Airport.

Caught a fly having his breakfast at the center of an early morning sunflower. The field is just outside the north edge of Denver International Airport. Processed using Skylum Luminar 2018 RAW Develop and Golden Hour presets.

Found an east sloping field of ripening sunflowers in the earlier morning sun. Due to heavy forest fire overcast had to correct RAW files for red haze tint.

Three (near macro) of three in a zoom series of this bloom.

Like the play of monotones across the entire image of el Arco at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Our cabin and balcony were on the correct side to watch these crags as Coral Princess crept past the end of the Baja Peninsula in the light of dawn.

We crept into Cabo San Lucas at dawn late in our cruise through the Panama Canal. Luckily, our cabin and balcony were on the side to watch the play of early morning light along the crags which form Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Found this image interesting with the early morning sun glancing off a Denver, CO, skyscraper behind shaded trees and bike racks.

After sunrise this sculpture seemed to pop out of a primordial forest.

Dawn sun rays back light the open petals of this 'old' rose in the Denver Museum of Nature and Science rose garden.

Watched the sunrise create a horizon shadow line along the Front Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The circular area in the foreground is a splash fountain for children during the heat of the day; in the mid ground is the lake, its boathouse, and a water jet fountain, with the Denver skyline below the Rocky Mountain peaks.

Made use of tall park trees to frame downtown Denver, CO, during blue hour. Intentionally, cropped out the streetlight in camera, but found the flare added to the image appearing to provide some of the light for the foreground.

Spotted this potential shot while approaching a group of fellow photographers gathered to take blue hour photographs of the Denver skyline against the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Took several shots from the area where they were gathered, then moved back to catch this image. Was amazed at how few actually moved from their initial set up location to change their viewpoint or perspective.

Green Valley Ranch Golf Course grounds crew predictably water the fairways of the course at the same time every day. Here the early morning sunlight shines through the sprinkler rooster tail and creates a sharp silhouette and shadows from trees along the fairway. Like the pastel rings around the rising sun, which are the result of applying the "Posterize" function to the basic image.

A pre-dawn scene on Congress Street in Austin, Texas. The Capitol Dome looms in the background with an ominous red glow, while the streets are lit only by the glow of headlights. Red and green traffic lights, and an array of white "christmas" lights gently dot the canvas of this quiet, peaceful scene.

Just happened to be chatting online with a few members of this group at 2am this morning, and I suddenly had this rash urge to set my alarm for 'stupid o'clock'

So just a little over two hours later, found me ankle deep in the freezing cold North Sea (and yes my boots leak), but results like this make the sacrifices all worth it
:-)

The camera has been gathering dust for far too long, I'm heading back to photoland

Often woke at or before dawn on Panama Canal cruise. This morning, a full day at sea, was blessed with a double rainbow arch in the ocean cumulus clouds from the rising sun.

Hint of pink reflecting on white feathers,
Surverying the dawning of the day.

This eagle had just chided a youngster who put of a bit of a squawk before conceding and leaving his perch in a fuss.

Love that the Monarchs are still hanging around...found this flower hedge the other morning and it was covered in them.

A rather poignant shot this

What you see here is the last bastion of steel making on Teesside, this blast furnace has been here for the last 100 years and news has now been confirmed that it will shut with the loss of over 2000 jobs on site and countless numbers as a knock on effect

Around a century ago there where 99 blast furnaces along this river, all producing steel that built the world, with this final closure it brings a history of 170 years of steel making in Teesside to an end

Pre-dawn shot of a local pier from atop the cliff

15sec shutter speed not only pulled out the colour from a very dark sky, but gave lots of movement to the water as the waved rose and fell

Yet another 4am trip to the coast saw a real battle of the elements, as the sunrise competed with the constant rain
alas the rain won out, and the sun went back to bed, but I did manage to catch this ribbon of red across a local coastal landmark
