Reflections of Sunrise

Project Description

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? When I first passed by this sunrise scene, the sun was much higher in the sky and its reflection in the lake much brighter. Since I wanted a picture with the sun just barely above the background hilltop as I expected that its reflection would be muted and the foliage better back lit, I returned early to the park two days later to make this picture.

What you will need

  • Canon 6D
  • 24-105mm lens at f/8 and 24mm
  • 200 ISO
  • manual exposure at two stops under indicated correct meter reading. Tripod mounted. Perhaps use of f/16 or so would have produced more distinct "rays" on the sun and its reflection
  • but the understated rays in this picture seem to work.
