Sunrise Take Two…

by on Mar.16, 2010, under Life, Photography

I was up early again and unlike yesterday when the sky was full of clouds there were almost no clouds this morning (quite a bit of haze however providing a very warm glow to the sky above the horizon).

Another chance to setup my tripod at my bedroom window and take some shots facing approximately east towards morning twilight and sunrise.

All of these shots are untouched from the out of camera RAW images (no white balance correction, no tone or colour correction) – just the standard Nikon RAW profile then resized and sharpened – so the colours you see are as the camera captured them.

6:44AM – I didn’t start shooting anywhere near as early as yesterday so the sky was already fairly well lit by this time and we have some fantastic warm glow through the high wispy clouds today. No really long exposures required today.
