… or “How to spoil a great sunrise”

I spotted this while taking the kids to school this morning. The ubiquitous silhouette of the satellite dish, has now become a permanent fixture of the urban landscape (certainly around Milton Keynes, UK, where I live), to the point that we don’t really notice it any more.

There is something fundamentally wrong with this picture… :-(

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Beauty in front, beast behind the camera? LOL No, really. Lovely sky….. both of them. I agree with what you are saying. In this photo, you have the two competitors. Nature and Gods creation vs. the almighty media which pulls people in front of the ‘boob tube’ so that people miss these beautiful mornings.

  • You are so right! An extra dimension to this that had not occurred to me. Thank you!
