The Golden Hour Photography, Morning, Swans on Lake during Golden Hour Photo

Morning Photography – Swans on the Lake

Morning can be a particularly good time to take great photos. More and more I am refraining from taking photos between 11am and 4pm as the colours are just washed out by the strong overhead sun (unless of course the sun is not an issue and you have some interesting clouds or sky to enjoy.)

The clouds were nice and I decided to take 5 different exposures in order to get […]

This can create some lovely effects when the sun is rising as the light breaks through the fog and starts adding color to the landscape. I went out and about this week, early in the morning to capture some shots of the morning fog lingering. I managed to get a nice location with some sheep and some interesting trees. The trees in the distance give […]
