Have I ever mentioned that I like to go back to favorite places a lot.  Favorite for a reason.  I wasn’t sure how the morning would be as there were high clouds over the horizon which seemed promising, but after yesterday’s brief sunrise I wasn’t sure.  Today turned out similar but without the sun showing itself at all.  It did warm the sky pretty well, I think.Gate-5-Sunrise-041414-2-1000WebThe water was quite choppy with the strong breeze this morning, so in addition to the circular polarizer, I added a 6 stop neutral density filter to allow the water to go smooth.  I don’t really like choppy water.  I don’t think this will be a candidate for black and white. 🙂

  1. Tremendous. That is a great location, but tough to work with. Well done.

    Definitely not a black and white, but a photo rich in color that is probably best left alone. I like a warm “sunset-ish” sunrise photo. Have you tried the Miller’s River from the bridge in Orange? Silver Lake in Athol? When the pink clouds come through, they make very impressive sunrises.

    I like that smooth water – goes well with the colour.

    I agree Steve, not a candidate for B&W at all.. 😀 What a simply gorgeous, good to be alive awe inspiring sunrise, (sun-rose came instantly to mind, I can see ‘blowsy’ peachy coloured petals on a stunner of a plant!!) xPenx

    That is a terrific scene and a great location. I would keep going back.


  6. Steve, I really like that you include some info about how you achieved your photo/s. It makes the post so interesting. I like the scene very much . The colors are almost orchid like in the soothing tones. Really beautiful.

    I’m still haviing to catch up with your posts that I missed. But will get around to all of them sooner or later. 🙂

    The ND filter worked really well. I am still waiting for some opportunities to use the built in one on the toy camera.
