Early Bird : Photo 101Rehab

I invite you to see a gallery of photos I shot on April 10th. I am an ‘early bird’ and love to watch the sun rising. It was beautiful morning, though still chilly, and there was the most invigorating way to start a new day, appreciating nature, accompanied by the soundtrack of singing birds.

Here is the gallery. Click to enlarge the photos.

I am posting for the  Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird

And for the Photo101 Rehab, the event for everyone who loves photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters, or just curious , anyone is welcome), and wants to join a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to connect with.

Want to know how to join? Check below.

Here is what ‘The Clinic Photo Rehab is:

This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy Townend, Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming of Leaving and Project Easier.

As former patients informed me that the withdrawal symptoms remained active, and new patients recognized the same symptoms, The Clinic – Photo Rehab  reopened its doors.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Passionately Curious, come and join us: “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.”

How to join:

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.

    1. I wish I had added here the soundtrack as I recorded it so that the experience would be complete.
      Carl, thank you so much. Good to see you visiting!!
      Thank you so much and have a lovely day and weekend.


  1. I just love how the sun changes the sky at different points in time. The soft lighting on the surroundings. I, too, am an early bird and I’m sitting here listening to our backyard birds before daylight. It’s amazing how sunsets and sunrises are so similar.


  2. that first shot is like…what…I don’t have words

    did i post properly for Rehab. I just used the link on the brick wall…did it appear somewhere on your blog?


      1. I didn’t actually do the “wall” thing, so photo wasn’t there. I thought all I had to do was post a link/pingback. Forgot. Now I put a photo in the place…


  3. Thank you for outlining how to do the photo101 Rehab. I had been wondering. I really enjoyed doing the photo101 and wanted to keep on. Part of what I enjoyed is getting to see everyone else’s photos, like your beautiful pics.


    1. I had imagined that you would like the cat. This one was biting the mice when I stopped. But as soon as did it, the cat let the mice fall from his mouth, and only grabbed it again when walked out slowly. I turned back to shoot him and the same happened. So funny!!
      Thanks for visiting. Have a lovely weekend.

  4. I’m so not an early bird–I adore sleeping in like nothing else. Sometimes, I wish I was, though, because morning is such a simply stunning time of the day. These are some great shots, Lucile!


  5. So many beautiful shots. Looks like you have a real knack for taking shots in the morning light. If I can manage being an early bird for this week’s challenge, I would be thrilled to capture just one as lovely.


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