A Dawn Photo Walk at Cedar Point

Very early  last Sunday, I joined a number of other Bloggy Con attendees for an early morning photo walk.  Our hosts were Angie Keiser who had also taught the session on Photography, and Bryan Edwards the VP of public relations for Cedar Point.

We began on the beach, in time to catch the sunrise on Lake Erie.

While we were there taking photos of the gorgeous sunrise, a seagull appeared as if summoned and posed for us.

Tried him from further off first, then
when he showed no sign of being spooked
I got closer,

Next, with Bryan as our guide, we headed into the nearly deserted park, to see a side of
Cedar Point most people never get.

One of the things we looked for was interesting angles to photograph. Angie talked about how one didn't need to photograph the whole ride to get a great picture.

 On the other hand there are great  juxtapositions of several rides at once.

Bryan also talked about how the park has tried to emphasize the water front in recent years. 

All in all we had a great time, well worth the
rising time. Here's a few more pictures:

Shhh...don't tell the kids,
I took a selfie at dawn.

My thanks once again to Angie and Bryan for such an enjoyable experience.


  1. I LOVE the pics! Those are some amazing pictures of the sunrise and I love the partial picture of the ferris wheel!

    1. Thank you! I had so much fun with this. It was one of my favorite parts of the conference, and reminded me that i need to work harder on my graphics. Thank you for the group picture as well.

  2. Great photos! I also read your other Bloggy Con posts - looks like it was a great experience for you. I won't show my kids your pictures, though, or they will be begging me to take them to Cedar Point to ride the roller coasters!

    1. I'm lucky, my daughter is old enough to ride without me! Plus she had several cousins there to ride with her. I don't mind straight up and down coasters, but I don't do upside down or loop the loops. Thank you for stopping by.
