I drove like mad to make it to the sunrise, hah! That’s impossible, oh right. So I stopped to take a photo with my iPhone and it simply wouldn’t focus. Turns out, I like it this way. This will be utilized for later photo composites…
Moving right along, I liked the way this golden sunrise lit up the grasses…
I then stopped at the St. Vrain Greenway for a brisk walk, checking out the trees especially…everything is about ready to pop with new life. (All photos taken with iPhone 4s)

iPhoneography, this is part of a series “First Day”, based on using the winter sunrise as an integral part of my image composites. The rising sun indicates rebirth, starting over, hope.
There’s a dirt road I drive down almost every morning, off the beaten path. I travel that way simply because it’s deserted and often times I see eagles, pheasant, geese and coyotes. In winter, I’m passing through there as the sun rises above the horizon, creating a pink glow.
As I continue down these roads, I pass farm fields covered with snow, just waiting for early spring. In one such field there are old rubber tires and a discarded upholstered easy chair. I imagine a farmer sitting out there…waiting. Then I wonder what goes on in their homes during the long, dark winter. There’s a feeling almost of abandonment, even though I know that it’s just the season.
This image came together as I was considering and imagining these things.

Best kind of hill…the anthill
