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.

5:49 am, Canon 200D, EFS 18-55mm IS lens at 49mm, ISO 800, f/22, 1/60 sec, edited in Lightroom.

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.



Happy Tuesday

River Derwent | 16 January 2018 | 5.58 am

This morning I sat by the rocks watching the waves crash in and waited a while to try and get the perfect splash. I thought this was it, but realised the lone kayaker was smack bang in the middle of the picture. I NEVER see kayakers on the river. I’d seen this person paddling up the river a few minutes ago and hoped they wouldn’t make it into the photo, yet there they are, in the best one of all. I thought about attempting to clone them out but I thought why not leave them. It’s the story of my morning, and they are in it. So there you have it, splash + kayak.
