Sunrise Color Palettes

July 7th, 2011

Once the sun had set on our Sunsets and Color Palettes post the search was underway for the yin to its yang. Knowing how photographers like to turn to the skies to capture the natural colors that each new day paints upon the waiting canvas, we have turned our attentions there as well. Once more showcasing some inspiring photos, this time of sunrises, and offering the accompanying color palettes derived from them.

The first time around was such a hit, and even as one reader commented asking to see a version of the posts from this side of the coin, we were planning this one. The differences in the colors between the skies at sunrise versus sunset seems somewhat more subdued, and less fiery. The softer colors that tend to show up in skies come morning ease us into our days, and in this case, provide oodles of inspiration for designers and more.

Many thanks for posting these.I enjoyed seeing how you have placed a palette with each photo. I’ve been out at dawn many days, and it’s great to see that others enjoy photographing the sunrise too.
