Sunrise View

by on Oct.03, 2019, under Life, Photography

One of the locations at Kennedy Ranges is called Sunrise View Trail (a Class 3, 300m return walk)

As the name suggests this location is best viewed at sunrise and is an ideal spot to watch said sunrise

My dad and I decided to get up early and get here before sunrise to photograph and watch the sunrise

It’s just a few minutes drive from the Temple Gorge campground and then a short walk up to the raised viewing area, which has a fabulous view of both the sunrise and the battlement-like face of the range behind you

We arrived quite early (like 5:30AM and well before sunrise). Which gave us time to get up here in the dark and setup (both for some still camera on tripod and drone photography)

This stitched pano using the drone was taken just after 6AM and still well before sunrise. It’s facing towards the Kennedy Range directly away from where the sun would rise. The lookout viewing area we are on is essentially below the drone

Pretty surprising what the Mavic 2 Pro camera can do even in very dim light at ISO 400
