Early Morning Magic at the Course

By: Tenna Merchent on June 2nd, 2011

I came to work at 6:30 this morning to get more photos of the golf course in the magic hour just after sunrise. As I drove around the course with James Brown I said, “I’d normally be working out, but I’d much rather be doing this!”

A golf course is absolutely magical first thing in the morning. There is often mist on the water, and many parts of the course. The shadows are long, the sky dramatic, and there’s dew on the fairways and putting greens. You get to watch the greens crew tend to the course. The birds are out and the air smells fresh. Why would I ever want to do anything other than be here first thing in the morning?

We were trying to get a lot of shots in, but as we’d pass by something, I’d say, “Can we stop here, just for a minute?” Every where I turned, the grass glistened, the leaves sparkled, the shadows whispered “take my picture, it will be amazing!”

Eight hole, The Serpent

Yes, that is the real sky.
