Super Bloom Sunrise
Morris Reserve, Bellbrook, Ohio
"There's a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.” - Jo Walton
A "Super Bloom" is a bizarre occurance to happen in Ohio. Much more typical the west coast deserts of the United States, they are timely events lasting about a week or two. In this case, one appeared at a local prairie and meadow in my county so I made sure to visit and photograph it as much as possible during peak bloom. This large tract of land at Morris seemed like the perfect candidate for having a lot of wildflowers come alive.
I arrived promptly just before first light to start the day off right with a sunrise composition. In terms of arranging the photo, I simply used the walking path in the middle as a leading line toward the background. The sun was just rising above the horizon in the image here. The rolling mist in the middle ground provides some clues as to it being a sunrise rather than a sunset as well. It is always worth getting up early and getting out there to view scenes like this!
