This week’s photo of the week is from the same morning shoot as last week’s photo. It was taken about 40 minutes prior to that photo, well before the sunrise. On clear mornings, this is one of my favourite times to shoot for the soft glow that appears on the east facing peaks and the cool tones in the western sky. To the naked eye it would still appear pretty dark at this point, but the camera will record this light nicely using a long enough exposure. Here I needed a 20 second exposure for the scene to expose properly, and as an added bonus, there were some broken clouds moving through which added some nice interest in the sky.
This will likely be one of the last wide angle shots you’ll see from me for a little while here. For those of you following along, you’ll remember the lens dropping incident from last week… The lens has been sent to Nikon for repair and as of right now, I’m still waiting for a diagnosis and estimate. I’m told that it could be as much as 6 to 8 weeks before I get it back which I’m none too excited about. I have heard that quite often it is quicker than that so I’ve got my fingers crossed that that’ll be the case. For now I’m just going to have to do without it and exercise my creativity a little more I suppose. Wish me luck!
