Calm Water

Calm Water

f/22, 5″, ISO-100, 70mm

I found myself awake at 4:00 AM this morning and, given the rarity of that situation these days, jumped (rolled) out of bed and lollygagged around for an hour, then decided to go out and shoot the sunrise.

I don’t know why I never remember that shooting a sunrise means you have to have your camera set up and pointed east, ready to go, a half hour before sunrise. When the sun is over the horizon, it’s already probably too late. This morning it was pretty cloudy, but there was a break with some lovely red color just off to the northeast that I might have been able to put together with a zoom lens. But I was about 5 minutes too late and the whole effect was gone.

In a fit of pique, I satisfied myself with this one instead, which was studiously pointed away from the eastern sky.
