Missy and I took a road trip yesterday. Our primary goal was a long abandoned one-room schoolhouse near Waukon, Iowa. We did get some nice shots of that, and will share them later, but the best shot of the day, in our opinion, was the one shown here.
We’re tooling down… or, up, if you follow a map and the north arrow… on Hwy 150 between Vinton and Independence when the sun was coming up. I did my patented “screech stop” and proceeded to capture some very nice sunrise shots.
You never notice how fast the sun rises until you want it to hold still for a photo?
Anyway, as you can see there was a low cloud ceiling, which gave it an interesting appeal… and also limited my available time. When we set out I was not specifically interested in a sunrise shot. We had the schoolhouse as our goal, but when you see something good you can’t help yourself, but to stop.
