Skywatch Friday - The Office

Sunrise, upstate New York, Monday, January 8.

Traveling to work, I knew it was going to be an amazing sunrise.  When I got to my office about 7:15 am, this is what greeted me.  It took my breath away.

But there were blinds, and reflections.  I tried to get closer.  I knew I faced a race against time. That beautiful pink sunrise wouldn't wait for me.  I ran over to my cubicle, and raised the blinds.

And this was the result.  Nice color (none of these pictures had color adjusted, by the way) but too much reflection.  But, nothing unlucky for this Friday the 13th post.

I still have a lot to learn about iPhone photography and fixing circumstances like these.  A research project awaits.

Day 13 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge #blogboost.


  1. What a beautiful sight! Thank you for sharing, Alana.

  2. Alana, If anything, Friday 13th has been a lucky morning for those in your area of upstate New York to see that beautiful sunrise. I enjoyed your pictures despite the reflections. A while back I did some research on the web for suggestions on how to shoot through windows with a smartphone when required. The best thing I found, and which I found effective, was to get the phone as close as possible to the surface of the window. Today is my first visit to Ramblin in a few days and I see posts for all the days I’ve missed which means you are still on track for your current blog challenge. Congratulations on that as we near the half way mark.

  3. amazing colours! I love photos through blinds.

  4. What beautiful colors! I love those photographs and how awesome to be able to take pictures of the sunrise, which is such a fleeting image! And how very lucky a Friday the thirteenth you've had to get those amazing images.

  5. Oh my God! It's stunning. I wish I could see those amazing colors in real once in my lifetime! Thanks for sharing the great captures.
