Wild Weekly Photo Challenge #19 - Wanderlust!

Sunrise is an elusive time of day that many of us seldom see. It’s a shame, because the sunrise can be just as beautiful as the sunset! This week, make a point to get up early and take your camera outdoors with you to take some beautiful photos of the sunrise – many wild animals are most active in the early morning, so you never know what you might see!

On Wednesday, February 27th (at 2pm EST, so be sure to submit your entries before that time, even at 1:59pm!) we’ll choose 1 judge’s choice winner, 5 runner ups, and 1 audience choice winner & share their entries here on LetsBeWild.com! Send your friends to this page to leave a comment-vote for your entry to win the audience choice award!

      I really like the one that captured the lightning – good timing – as trying to get a still photo of lightning isn’t the easiest. All in all nice photos.

      this post reflects how important sun and light are to an image. ‘here comes the sun’ is my pick of this litter, and a great litter it is!

      i noted the dramatic sunlight before noting the blue moon, which made it extra special. there’s something so wonderful about the sun rising when a full moon is setting.. or the moon rising and the sun setting. great image!

        that was a late summer sunrise, Lisa, from this past year – and I can’t recall any changes, specifically. I just remember having my breath taken away & knowing I needed to get that pic!

    I have patiently waited for a sunrise this grey, grey winter’s week – but no… And that has got nothing to do with me being a late sleeper when I’m off duty! Here’s my entry, anyway!

      it’s gorgeous! the background is dreamy, perhaps a subtle reminder that sometimes it’s a good thing to rise and shine in time to catch those beautiful sunrise moments!

    I especially like that this topic brought back a really great time in my life, caring for an aunt before she died. I saw the most beautiful sunrises at this time. Three straight weeks of walking a Boston Terrier twice a day for two miles each time – Two Mile Lake, I called it.

    the rains continue to blot out the sunrises, though we have sunny skies in the daytime! here’s a classic story that illustrates why one should shove out of bed in time to catch the first rays of morning!

      Amazing photos yet again my dear! I had to do a double take on the shot of the crab because at first I did not realize that is what it was! What a beautiful shot and character! All the sunrise photos – fantastic! There has to be a winner in this bunch! My best – B

    I’m a little late coming in, but better late than never… I LOVE sunrises, they’re so inspiring. It’s a challenge to capture nice ones in Southern California but I’ve got a few pretty ones to share.
