Yesterday proved to be a stellar day for photography.
1. My Vatican Museum photo was selected as the Photo of the Day on EarthShots.org.
2. My series on St. Peter’s Basilica was featured in Nik Software’s June newsletter.
3. The combination of these two awesome little surprises contributed to me shattering my daily hit count record, and it looks like I am on track to double that number today.
Today I figured I would throw up another full resolution image for your pixel-peeping pleasure. Another shot from Aci Trezza in southeast Sicily, I got my buns out of bed extra early in order to capture this sunrise. Just as I finished getting this shot, the sky opened up and Zeus started blowing his nose all over the city. Fortunately, the D800 is weather sealed pretty nicely, and I suppose I was too. The sunrise was nothing too special, but at fairly moderate risk to life and limb, I was able to squirm my way in to this composition, having jumped from slippery rock to slippery rock to get there. It was quite a challenge to get back when I was finished, the rocks being as slick as ice after the surprise downpour.
Thanks for all the visits, comments, and support recently. It is extremely motivating. Don’t forget to watch (safely) Venus cross the Sun this evening (stateside) or tomorrow morning (Europe).
