At the beginning of the year, I decided to take a picture of the sun rising every Sunday morning of 2012. So far I've gotten some good sunrises and some bad sunrises. This morning, I got a great sunrise. I went out to Breckenridge Park in Richardson, TX. It is a huge park with soccer fields, a lake and lots of trails for jogging.
Yesterday, the weather forecast for Sunday was for clear skies, but all day Saturday, we had rain. When I woke up Sunday, I had a feeling it was going to be a great shoot. The night sky was very clear. I headed out and set up. There was a fog over the lake and there were lots of ducks and geese around. I even heard a woodpecker. It was a peaceful morning.
I moved around to different parts of the lake and got some great shots, but I really started getting some great shots when I turned my camera towards the trees. Here are my pictures from the shoot. The first few are untouched, the last few are HDR conversions.
|1/2 Sec. Exp, F/5.6, 18mm, ISO 100|
|1/4 Sec. Exp., F/18, 18mm, ISO 100|
|1/30 Sec. Exp., F/18, 80mm, ISO 100|
Here are the HDR composites.
I hope you enjoy the pictures. I'll be heading out again Sunday morning.
Until next time...
