“Sunrise Over Madison Indiana”


Here is one from the other morning, I waded out onto a sandbar to get the perspective upriver, the light shining thru the morning fog was absolutely gorgeous that morning. I wasn’t really sure if I liked the ducks in the image but now after looking at it I don’t particularly think they hurt it either.

I really like shooting this bridge it just seems to give me so many different moods when I am able to photograph it, I would also like to spend more time shooting river images but I just can’t seem to be able to cram enough of hours into a day. I always say I am going to make it a point to shoot more of a certain type of image  and then usually something in life gets in the way.

I am just hoping to get enough time to shoot some images from this coming fall. I plan on a couple quick trips to the Smokies and then some work at Clifty and that will probably take what spare time I have, then it’s on to winter  which I am really not looking forward to.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look I hope you enjoy the images I really appreciate all the comments and support you have giving me over the last year or so and hopefully I will be able to share a image or two you might like in the coming weeks.  ( Best seen Large)

    So many beautiful aspects to this shot. I love that the only 2 colors are almost totally complimentary. I love the juxtaposition of the ducks (nature,) in front of the bridge (man-made.) I love the “mists” represented both as fog & clouds. I love the contrast of light & dark, made more intriguing by the shielding of sun by the clouds. Awesome, all the way around.

    As they say, life’s what happens when you’re making other plans! I also haven’t been out photographing/birding/hiking very much at all. So it goes.

    I agree w/Lana that the color palette in this photo is wonderful, and the spindly silhouette of the birdge is a great contrast to the wispy clouds & mist. Keep the ducks for sure, but perhaps lose the truck 🙂

    Thank you for sharing the beauty of Madison Indiana. I personally have an great affinity for bridges in photography.

    Here in Charleston we had these two great bridges called the Twin Spans. They connected Charleston SC to our barrier Islands. It was a sad day to see them destroyed. They live on only through photography now, and the images we hold dear in our minds’ eye.

    Perhaps one day, when this “old” bridge sees its demise, your outstanding portrait will bring someone great joy to remember “when it used to be”.

    Awesome photography.

    Bernie,
    I am taking your comment about sharing information about Madison to heart. I am recently retired and looking at the beauty of Indiana, especially to the south for a place to live. I hope to come to town around the last two weeks of April and wondered if you would meet me or send information that might help me explore the area, including affordable places to live, tax laws etc. I don’t really know about using this site and am thus hoping your response might come to my email address jallenww@juno.com.

    I am currently in Richmond IN, having left New Haven, Conn a few months ago.
    Best regards, Judith Allen
