Dawn to Sunrise - 27 August 2018 (Original Video/Photos)

in photography •  2 months ago

The smoke in the upper atmosphere from the fires in the western United States is still adding color to sunrise in otherwise clear blue skies.

In these pictures you will see a crowd gathering to watch the sunrise. You may have heard the expression "the early bird gets the worm". In this series of photos and in the video you will see that the early bird also sees the sun rise.

Photographs taken on 27 August 2018.

Sunrise Video

For this photo shoot I focused on the distant horizon then turned off the auto-focus and the image stabilization on my lens. I used a high f-stop to keep both the foreground and background in sharp focus.

The photographs in the video cover a 34 minute time-frame. The video starts 30 minutes before the official sunrise time.

Full Video

All the photographs taken have been compiled into a short 4 minute 17 second video. The photographs have not been enhanced, you see what I observed.

Music: "Antarctica" by Audionautix. This music was chosen because the musical transitions seemed to match the tone of this sunrise.

Time Lapse Video

The following animated GIF is 30x the speed of the full video. The full video is much better, this time lapse contains some pixelization.

Original Video

Sunrise Photographs in Sequence

Dawn: The period of the day when light begins to appear in the sky from the sun.
Sunrise: The time when you first see the sun in the morning.

To give you an idea of the when the photographs were taken I am adding a T-time. T-0 is sunrise, T-10 is 10 minutes before sunrise, and T+5 is 5 minutes after sunrise.

This is a representative sample of the photographs in the video. The photographs have not been enhanced, you are seeing what I observed on this morning.

Watch the utility pole and utility lines.

This video is magic, @etcmike! The piece of music you chose goes like a ring to the finger. That change in the third minute, in the song and in the images, the colors, the sliding of the clouds or the smoke, is wonderful. We are truly blessed by God! Only he can give us something so wonderful. Like those birds, in the first row, we are witnesses of the dawn. Thank you for sharing!

We have seen such a beautiful picture of the drowning sun and the video may be I have seen before, as well as the sky covered with pollution.

·

Thanks sir

awesome photos

Great photographs sir.

There is a saying in my country, Colombia: "The early bird God helps him" and I think it's similar to the saying you quoted. The sunrise is already beautiful, but it becomes more beautiful when we share it with others, that is why the birds are united and that is why you share all these blessings that God gives you. A hug

Talented. Upvoted, resteemed.

absolutely beautiful. ❤😊❤ simply stunning views.
The colours here are out of this world. It's almost like it was painted with gradients in photoshop. It's unbelievable! wonderful job, love with video. ❤

I wish I were just 0.1% as good as you are with Photoshop. But alas, I have no skill when it comes to Photoshop. I have Adobe Photoshop on my computer but have not been able to use it yet.

Each sunrise is as unique as each day. I just try to capture the sunrise as best as I can.

Keep producing and posting those fantastic Photoshop tutorials!! At the very least I am learning the creativity the Photoshop tool can bring to life. It seems like if you can imagine it, you can create it.

Have a great week!
Steem on,
Mike

Great Foto...

wonderful post. i love it.

Beautiful sequence Mike. And your music is apppropiate and brilliant. I live in Thailand where I get to see amazing sunrises and sunsets too but do not have your great equipment. Will resteem for sure.

·

Thank you! Your comment is greatly appreciated. I listen to a lot of royalty-free music to pick out just the right music for each sunrise. Sometimes I come back to previously used music just because it goes so well with different sunrises.

Have a great week!
Steem on,
Mike

I know it’s not always easy to remember to grab the photography/video camera as the drama is happening. Do you generally have big tidal changes round there? Getting back out there the next day shows great persistence @etcmike an important trait of any landscape photographer. Your commitment was rewarded with an unbelievable sky that you captured beautifully mate. These sorts of warm, fiery skies are sometimes difficult to predict as they depend on so many factors,, like the right type of cloud coming over at the right time with the sun at just the right angle. One thing you can guarantee though is that if you don’t get out, you won’t capture much at all. Thanks for sharing your trip out to the coast Tom, it’s fantastic to see how someone else approaches capturing landscape "sunrise".

[Appreciated]👍
Thanks again👌✌

·

Here is Nebraska we are land-locked. No tidal action around here.

You are right about there being many factors affecting the majesty of each sunrise.

Have a great week!
Steem on,
Mike

Wonderful photography

Loading...

Those are the skies that will knock you flat on your rear. I also end up laughing with giddy joy at scenes like that, they make you so proud to be a photographer, and so proud to make the early rise and shine sacrifice. I love the new end card, Ben really deserves some extra attention from all of us photo obsessed steemit addicts. 😁 You continue to be a stellar example to all of us! Thank you for another great video/photography.
