Photo101 Rehab #7

“Just Thursday Blog Hop” asks: What’s your fave time of the day? at Mara Eastern’s blog.

You grasped from the photo that I was up early to capture the sunrise. I’m not sure of what started first, my preference for the early morning soft lights, sounds and stillness – and the fact that I’m the only one awake in the family until many hours later – or my lifelong habit or handicap, to wake up early and go to bed late.

My mood is not disturbed by that, on the contrary, it gives me lots of energy. That’s the time I like to be close to nature and watch it. I love making photos at sunrise, as well as at sunset hours. The light  is fascinating for the effects it creates.

I equally like the stillness of late night. In both times of the day, I like reading and working.

This is a stock photo made in the island of Karphatos in Greece. This is also my #7 photo for the “The Clinic” – Photo101 Rehab.  Made from my iPhone 5 without editions. Which editor could top the sun lights?

And.. if you didn’t know yet what the Photo101 Rehab is, you still can do.


Once upon a time there was Photo101 course with daily assignments, which ended on November 30 and for that we miss it ever since.

Bloggers from all over the world connected as a strong community; sharing photos, chats and tips, and everyone added a special touch to the course, making it addictive.

Some of us, including me, didn’t want to say goodbye, and started feeling the first addiction’s symptoms, as described by inmate Albert nty6x at his blog Passionately Curious.

“Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

I had to think of something to resolve this.

Welcome to the Photo101 Rehab Center; especially dedicated to some confessed addicts: my fellow blogger and first ‘patient’ Andy Townend, as well as Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, the newcomers Lucy and Terri, and to all others not yet confessed photo101 addicts.

The Rehab rules are simple:

Opening time: Add your link from 04 to 31 December 2014.

Themes: You only need to choose a technique you want to explore or already master but want to share. It is a free theme but bring with it an explanation of the technique you used, as well as any editing effects, so we can all learn from each other.

Vote: If you want you can vote on the photos you like the most. At the last day (Dec 31) of the Photo Rehab you  can vote on the top 10 and celebrate.

How to register: Create a post with your photo, and add it here by using the link below.

    1. I cannot advise as I think it’s a birth defect. Sometimes I would just like to sleep longer too, particularly when I’m reading till late and still wake up at the same time as always. I think who invented us humans, used me as a prototype of the internal clock and made it to perfection.
      PS. Happy you like the photo. It’s not Crete, but Karphatos, where androids also may like to spend vacations.


  1. I thought the same thing as Mara: how do you manage being a morning person AND a night person? I agree that it is lovely to be the first person up in the morning, and who can go to sleep when a good book is beckoning?

    The rising sun is beautiful, especially with the rippling water.


    1. If i could manage it, I would sleep more, because maybe this is nkt healthy, but as long as I can remember, I have been like that.
      If I’m not tired and sleepy, a good book is the best option; I side with you.

      This was a perfect view and place for yoga practice.

  2. Impresionante la foto.
    Me encantan las puestas de sol y los amaneceres. Frente a mi casa los atardeceres son maravillosos y no hay día que no le haga alguna foto aunque sea todas muy parecidas.
    Yo también me levanto temprano y me acuesto tarde (no de madrugada).


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
