tuesday sunrise

I normally go out for a walk at about 5am. This morning I was a bit later because I overslept. At this time of year, later means I get to see the sunrise.

The first thing I saw was this jetstream. I like how the approaching sunlight adds some colour to the jetstream.

Four minutes later, the light had changed completely.

I didn’t have to wait long for the sun to rise and I wanted to capture it before it had fully crossed the horizon.  This was my attempt.

I love the rays of the sun that you can just make out in the image. There were very faint in the out-of-camera image and I wasn’t able to do a lot with them in processing, but they are there, very subtly.

I usually take my phone with me on my walks but after seeing the results with my camera today I’m going to start taking it along instead and learn more about what I can achieve with it.
