|Canon 60D, Tamron 17-50mm, f14, ISO100, 17mm, HDR, 9 Exposures|
Scouting for photo locations is not something I do much of, but while I was out Saturday afternoon, thought it might be a good idea to check and see what the water level was down at Grey Cloud Island, in particularly at the park. Bad news, the water was still too high, good news, I found a couple of totally new spots directly across the bay from the park, facing back to the east. Not only was it cool to get a new spot, but I knew it would face the rising sun on Sunday morning.
Sunday produced one of the coolest sunrises I’d seen in MN, mainly due to the odd colors it produced as the sun got closer to the horizon. It switched from blue hour, to magenta, then on to some blend of yellow, blue and magenta right before the tree line was broken. Even though clouds were scarce, what was in the sky happened to be in the eastern sky. So lucky!
There’s a couple of long exposures ready to post from the same morning, but after the light got brighter, my 2 stop grad ND filter really made little difference, so I switched to bracketing, this time with the new Magic Lantern software I downloaded for my 60D. So nice to snap off 9 exposures and only pushing the shutter one time, then not have to worry about aligning images in post!
