The Mittens at Sunrise by Ann  Van Breemen

These are the East and West Mittens in Monument Valley, Utah, moments before the sunrise. This photo was taken from the balcony of our hotel room, so I didn’t have far to walk. I virtually just rolled out of bed and pressed the shutter button.(lol)

I am an avid photographer of 60+ and will shoot just about anything, although I’m not so good at moving objects. Anything faster than a snail leaves me for dead. (haha) I do prefer natural landscapes over urban ones but, really, nothing is safe from my lens. I also enjoy turning my failed images, and there are lots, into digital art.

In 2014 I started dabbling in Fractal Art using Apophysis 7x to satisfy my creative urges on the days when I can’t take photos.

    You were able to shoot this from your HOTEL BALCONY?? wow! Now that’s what I call a room with a view. Hope you managed to bag a sunrise to sunset collection from the same viewpoint. Wonderful capture!

  • Thanks Carol. I must admit it was hard to get me off the balcony!! We stayed there four nights and I was up for the sunrise every morning but this was the best of the lot.:)

  • Wow. Thank you Daniel. This means a lot to me as we so loved the American Southwest. We’re going back again at the end of this year. It’s a big trip for us from Australia. 15hours on the plane just to L.A. but it’s worth it.:)
