I grew up camping, I was a girl scout. I backpacked, hiked, roughed it my whole life. But somehow at 53 I find myself back in a tent! lol.... well.... This isn't my Daddy's camping. Internet service nearby. Bathrooms, showers, pools and jacuzzi's just feet away. We don't cook on the campfire, we travel to town and eat at the diner. lol.... We have luxury blow up mattresses and electricity for fans or heaters. But I find that I'm really liking it. And with sunrises like this, I'm liking it more and more each time!

Hi Linda,
A beautiful sunrise well presented and composed with a tent silhouette,
Nice point of view and details,
Love the colors in the sky and light trought the tent..
Nicely done, Michel

Hello Limda

I like the long shadows that go along with that beautiful new day. The trees hard contrast mix with the blue of the sky nicely. I like it

Hi Linda.

This is one of those special images that appear every now and again on TL, stunningly perfect.

I love the way this is all positions seamlessly, the central trees and light, the shadows and tent, and the patterns to the high cloud join in as if ordered......love it Linda, tfs

stv ;o))

Love the amazing light and exposure you have got here, Linda B-)

The details are fantastic and colors are natural.
Good POV and well kept DOF in this scene.
Well done!

Kind regards,

A sunrise worth getting up for, and a photo worth showing. Thanks

Lovely shot Linda, the sky is stunning. I have friends in their 50s too who camp like this all the time and they love it. I would have been tempted here to compose this shot with the trees and tent more to the right of the frame, rather than centrally. I think that would have opened up the sky a little more. You have certainly captured the peaceful feeling of the sunrise here though.

Dear Linda,

The camping scene against the sun light is looking marvellous. Pouring sunrays through the trees is lovely. Such a charming picture, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Olß Linda
