Morning Glory

“Many photographers prefer to photograph the world as the sun goes down,” writes Your Shot member Todd Klassy. “Me, I prefer the peacefulness of the morning light.” After a night of heavy snow, Klassy made sure to get up before snow plows had a chance to alter the clean white landscape in rural Green County, Wisconsin. “Fortunately, the sun painted the horizon a beautiful pinkish hue, and it provided a nice background for this minimalist scene,” he writes. “Unfortunately, the snow plow driver was up earlier than me and cleared the road before I had a chance to photograph it without the black strip of asphalt.”

Klassy’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
