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

Sunrise Photographs in Sequence
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.
