    Lumia 1020, summer holiday back to my hometown (city) of Perth, Western Australia, January 2014. This was taken south of Perth on Warnbro beach following a rather delicious fish and chips with my long since divorced parents, united for my birthday celebration, just the three of us.


    I know you wanted a sunrise, but I'm either sleeping in or traveling to work when sunrise hits, so this is actually a sunset. It's pretty close.

    This photo was taken in East Poland. That morning a 1200km lay before us going back home. So we got up early at 3.30 in the morning. When we went to the car, we were greeted with this absolutely awesome first glimpse of the sun rising.
    Taken with HTC Titan, no editing (browsing through those photos i'm impressed again how good the Titan's camera was).

    Lets get out and shoot more. I thought it would be fun if we had a weekly photo contest here on the site. How about every Wednesday well pick a theme, and you have until next Tuesday to go out and use your Windows Phone to capture the image. Our first theme? Lets do sunrise.

    I thought capturing a sunrise would be a nice way to start. This is after all the dawn of a new weekly series. Get it? Dawn? Sunrise?

    Well tweak the format as we go forward, but for now its pretty simple. Take a photo of sunrise. You dont have to point your Windows Phone directly at the rising sun. You can if you want, but feel free to get creative with the theme sunrise. Maybe its the light falling onto your coffee first thing in the morning. Maybe its the reflection of dew on a blade of grass. Maybe you literally point your camera at the sun. Doesn't matter as long as it feels like sunrise.'


    • Picture must be taken with a Windows Phone
    • Picture must be uploaded to the contest thread.
    • You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software or apps you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine, this is art.
    • Feel free to add a little back story, we want to know how the picture came to be.
    • You must have used a valid email address to register here at Windows Phone Central, so I know how to contact the winner.
    • Only one entry per week per person.


    This week well give you two $25 gift cards for your Microsoft account. Apply that cash to your Microsoft account, and you can use it towards an app or game in the Windows Phone Store, Windows Store or Xbox store.

    Well pick a winner Tuesday night (August 5) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in the blog post for the contest next week.

    This one easy. When I was visiting the Maldives, I got an opportunity to visit one of the islands. Here's a raw image I took with my Lumia 925 while I was travelling in a speedboat. Correct timing and a powerful camera gives you this. I hope you all like this capture.

    I took this picture with my Lumia 1020 while on vacation at Emerald Isle NC. I like the sunrise at Emerald Isle because the island runs east-west and the ocean faces in a southerly direction rather than east. In this picture the sunrise is actually out of the picture to the left and on this day was hidden behind clouds. Yet, the sun's rays were catching the top of the clouds facing south.

    Nokia Lumia 1320 shot with Nokia Camera and enhanced using Nokia Creative Studio, who says you need a top camera for great shot!

    This was a trip with friends to beautifull places on the Dominican Republic. In the picture, there is a friend who does not like take picture with him inside. He was ok with this one because you can not recognize him. Hope this could win, I want to see his face after that :P

My excited every morning just simply look drops remaining on the trees, looking very pure. The early morning sunlight shining on Plum glitter very beautiful. I would like to share it with everyone. Thank for looking..! :)
