If you have never experienced a sunrise you have not experienced one of the most spectacular color shows you will ever see. Not only is it a show of color but of life coming to life into a new day. You can return to the very same spot and it is different every time. One of my favorite things about it is the birds waking up and singing and beginning to move about. They never seem to have a care in the world, not worried about the news, weather, stock market, or anything else but sing a beautiful song.
In the fall of 2010 I started shooting what was going to be a mini documentary of Bluff Drive on Isle of Hope in Savannah Georgia. I wanted it to incorporate pictures from the past and show a matching scene of what it looks like now, kind of a then and now type of thing. This is a huge task and responsibility to do a project like that, try to make it fit into a five minute video, and go it alone... Bluff Drive even though it's only a few blocks long could take years to tell and show its beauty. There has been thousands of photography's, artist paintings, and even Hollywood movies picturing "The Bluff". The change that happens in just six minutes of that show of color I was talking about at sunrise will make you hold your breath the entire time. Kind of an Alice in Wonderland experience thing or a Jimmy Hendrix purple haze moment. Ok I am getting way off track and only the "experienced" will even know what I am talking about.
This video is only me throwing a few quick clips into a time line and rendering them out. One day I hope to get back on the project. For more information on Isle of Hope please visit this website and by all means if you are in the Savannah Georgia area do take a slow ride down what was once Shell Road now called Bluff Drive. Come early and park your car and walk slowly down the bluff then late that afternoon come back and do it again. That within itself would be more than worth coming to Savannah Georgia.http://www.isleofhope.com/
