Dawn to Sunrise - 8 September 2018 (Original Video/Photos)

in #photography6 years ago

Dark clouds on the horizon threatened to block the rising sun. But the sun found a break in the clouds to eventually shine through.

Photographs taken on 8 September 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 43 minute time-frame. This video stitches together 97 photos starting 27 minutes before the official sunrise.

Full Video

All the photographs taken have been compiled into a 9 minute 31 second video. The photographs have not been enhanced, you see what I observed.

Music: Music: "Ride of the Valkyries" by Wagner.

Time Lapse Video

The following animated GIF is 95x the speed of the full 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.

When I think about how wonderful it is to capture these moments, I often realize how little I had to do with making these wonderful moments. For I am just the guy behind the camera.

One more stunning sunrise mate... Absolutely stunning. I specially like the fast video mode where the deep blue skies in dawn got the golden rays of sun... And hence a royal sky woku up above us. Keep posting dear. Steem on!
