Sky's The Limit

I have to say that I am obsessed with sunsets and sunrises. They are a sign of renewing and beginnings or endings depending. I have a goal of trying to get sunsets or sunrises in every state of the United States. No two are ever really alike and depending upon where you are, when you take the shot, at the time of the year you take your shot, it always changes.

I was up early the other day and was able to catch this glorious sunrise. I just thought that the colors were just breath taking. Hope you all enjoy it as well.

Nikon D90
Lens 18-70mm at 46mm
Aperture F/13
Shutter 1/60 secs.
Manual Settings

I rushed out of my house and was messing with my settings to be able to get as true a color as possible to what I was seeing and manual was the only way to do this. So I played around with several settings until I found the one that I liked. In doing this I completely forgot about my ISO/film speed and did not change that. I wish I had set my film speed lower for these shots. Otherwise I was pleased with the sky color. My connection to Justin's picture is the sun.

  1. The colors in this make me feel warm and cozy. So beautiful. As one of your closest friends, I'm amazed that you were up for a sunrise, while at home :)
    Beautiful picture. I need a coffee and a good book to enjoy it properly.
