Today’s Photo: Waiting for the Gate
I was near home the other morning, just at sunrise when I saw this cow just standing next to the fence. It just happened to be right next to the gate between two pastures. Most of the time, the gate is closed, but not that morning. It was propped open. However, it looked like the cow was confused by the lack of a closed gate. Then I just looked at the sunrise and forgot about the cow.
Today’s Photo: Time Change
Finally, time has changed. I am still not used to it, but now I will have many more hours of daylight for photography. Not that everything else in life is going to get in the way. The joy of children, a full time job, a wife and growing a rather large garden. I would not give any of it up though. They all make for too many photo opportunities.
Today’s Photo: Morning for a New Beginning
I have been trying for a while to decide what to post for today. The reason… It has been two years since I started this Daily Photo Blog. In the beginning, there were a few missed days, some rough times getting the motivation to keep going and bumps with managing the site. However, over the last two years, most of those have been hammered out.
To begin year three, I get back to one of the gates that centered some of the most beautiful shots over the last couple years. As with the photo being the dawn of a new day, this is the dawn of a new year and hopefully some new experiences for me and this site.
Today’s Photo: A Storm at the Gate
I have been spending so much time processing photos of Christmas Lights, that I have neglected to get some shots of gates up. I haven’t had much time to go exploring for some new gates, not to mention the weather here has either been way to bad or nonexistent. This shot I took a while back. I was trying for a little closer perspective.
Today’s Photo: Midday Gate
It is extremely rare that I drive past this gate during the midday. I just happened to be going to a Christmas party with the kids when I saw these perfect clouds. I stopped for a few shots and we were not even late to the party. I’m starting to get good at building in some time for unexpected pleasures like this. Now why can’t the clouds look like this at sunrise or sunset?
Today’s Photo: Entrance to the Farm
I don’t really know that this is a farm. However, making an educated guess is pretty easy. There is a lot of land inside this fence and I could see a herd of cattle in the distance. I took this just before watching a pretty good colorful sunset. I also stayed around a little longer and got some of those dusk colors after the sun went down.
Today’s Photo: Sunset Through the Gate
I drive nearly the same path on a regular basis, so I get to see the sunrise and sunset. About half the year, my schedule takes me through an area with several good landscape shots, during sunrise and the other half, I go through at sunset. Right now, it is sunset time and we have been getting some descent clouds in the afternoon and evening. This is one of the first sunset shots that I have gotten in a while.
Today’s Photo: The Hollow
This is another of those gates that I see frequently. However, I rarely take photos of it. Mainly because the view hardly changes. There are no spectacular sunrises or sunsets. Sometimes I catch the morning fog here, but this time, I was able to capture the first good frost of the year.
Today’s Photo: Frosty Morning
I have shot so many photos of gates in this area, that sometimes I forget to look elsewhere. What is sad is that this gate is just down the road from the others. Most of the time, I don’t make it by this gate with good light. Usually it is too early, as in the

Today’s Photo: Dew Before Dawn
Sometimes it feels good to get back to the beginning. Over the last several months, my schedule has not allowed me to be out and about around sunrise or sunset. This was probably the closest I was in that time frame and it was still several …Continue Reading Here…
