Prior to what I posted yesterday, I was concentrating on the dawn colors over Prescott Peninsula…a part of the Quabbin lands that is off limits for unauthorized visits. I am not quite sure why it is off limits now, but I believe it had been so eagles could be reestablished, which was very successful, although it was also stated that water quality protection is why. Perhaps it is to continue protecting them.
So here is what I quickly captured upon arriving breathless at water’s edge after double timing it down the road. I am quite happy that we are approaching the equinox and the sun will start rising a little later each day. We have reached a point where it rises at 5:12 each of the next several days before starting back towards 5:15 and onwards.
This is what .6 seconds looked like.
But the goal was to work on long exposures. So here is 178 seconds.
Again, each has its strong points. Had the water been more calm, I think the first could have resembled the second but with more defined cloud structure. After Jackson’s question yesterday I will add that I did use two different white balances here. The first is as shot and the second is daylight.
So…again I ask, do you have a preference.? 🙂
