Sunrise Service is such a great title!
I wish I had skills to critique something of this nature, but I don't quite have them, so I couldn't really do it even with enough time to, 'cause I'm just not quite there yet.

But of course you sure new when to snap the shutter!
How much work was behind this? You surely had to sit somewhere freezing cold, early in the morning on a mountaintop, waiting for a gondola to come by. :sun: You might have had to block out a whole morning to take this

Every Easter the local ski resort offers a non-denominational Sunrise Service (hence the title). It's the one time a year people can ride the gondola for free, and since I grew up on the other side of the mountain, going is always extra special to me. When I took this I even got both my parents (divorced 15 years) to come to the top with me. When I was little and they were married, my mom said she could hear the singing from the choir from our porch, and my dad even went to the top one year and skied to our back yard from there.

Anyway, probably wrote back a little much -- but thank you for commenting on this piece and I am glad you enjoyed it! Honestly, I just bundled up and when I got to the top of the mountain, snapped as many shots as I could before the service started. I only had to block out 5:00-7:00am to be able to do this ;)

Great photo. The colours in the sky look beautiful & there's a nice balance to the picture with the ski-lift one side & the trees on the other. :D (Big Grin)

Interesting that the basic composition is even but skewed to the right, but the focal point is nearly dead center. It keeps dragging my eyes back to the sun!

Thank you~! And this year was my first winter skiing since I was 13 -- it is the closest you can get to flying with your feet still on the ground c:

This is so stunning! You've captured the sunrise beautifully, and framed the setting in a way that makes it harmonic to look at. Very atmospheric :aww:
