Photography of Roy Thoman

Banana River Sunrise

I was in Merritt Island Fl. early one morning. My lens was treated to a beautiful sunrise over the Banana River. The Banana River is not a banana though, they just call it that  because it’s sort of shaped like a banana. It’s not really a river either, it’s a saltwater lagoon. So it’s not a banana, and it’s not a river, but it’s a really pretty place for a sunrise.

    Stunning shot, the tree in the foreground transforms the photo. And I love your description of the lake’s name. Brilliant! Thanks for following my blog, it’s much appreciated.

    • Thank You Ben! I always hunt for something interesting to add to the foreground of my sunrises. A sunrise on it’s own is nice, but when you add something to your foreground it takes your image to the next level. I liked your photos of Old-town Geneva. I spent some time there and it’s a beautiful place!

        Great tip on the foreground, I’m going to bear that in mind in the future. Thanks, the old town is a lovely area to explore. Just a shame it’s such a small part of Geneva!

    • Thank you for your prayers Keli! I’m sure that you are not as shaky as I am. You don’t get to see all of my blurry shots. 😀 I have a bit of a tremor that makes getting a clear shot a challenge sometimes. I try to use a tripod or a mono-pod as much as I can. It is a pain sometimes but it works. When I was young my dad taught me to shoot a rifle. He taught me how to control my breathing as I take my shot. I also use this same technique when taking a photograph. Oh I also try to keep my shutter speed a bit higher to help keep things sharp. Anyway you have some nice photos too! 🙂 Oh so hows the movie shoot, are they done? I think I saw a photo on your blog under a bridge. I thought maybe it was the one you were talking about. Happy steady shooting!

      • Thanks for all the good ideas to cure my “blurry” talent. LOL. Yes, they are finished with the movie, but I just haven’t had time to go all the way downtown to take those bridge shots. I do have others, but the ones you are thinking of, are the ones I want to do, but haven’t been able to persuade my hubby to take me back to shoot some. : (
