I’m addicted to Sunrises. I’m up just about every morning checking the pre-dawn sky and if I see a few clouds, I’m on it. I had noticed the high grass along one of the paths to the field beyond and I knew the sun would come up right in line with it so that’s where set up my tripod and Nikon D800E Camera. I used a Nikon 24-120mm lens set at 31mm. f/22 which gives the sun the star effect; exposure was 1/80th which for me anyway requires a tripod. I’m pretty steady up to 1/60th but beyond that, gotta use the SLIK tripod. Manual exposure setting using spot metering. I take my reading on the bright section of sky away from the sun and lock the exposure;frame up the shot and shoot it. ISO was 400 with Auto white balance. Nikon cameras do very well in my opinion using the auto white balance. I was pleased with the results. A perfect example I think of the Sun making a shot. It even makes the weeds look good.
For all of you stateside, have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. And for everbody, have a great weekend. See you soon on most of this same blog.
