Morning Photography – Swans on the Lake

Jan 30 2013

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.) Mornings where the weather is very cold can often produce very high clouds which are then lit by the rising sun during what is known as the Golden Hour. The Golden Hour refers to the hour after sunrise when the colours are warm. The photo […]

The clouds were nice and I decided to take 5 different exposures in order to get as many textures as possible. The result for this weeks delayed Project 52 shot is below. I had hoped to […]

November is always a good time for getting photos with early morning mist and fog. 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 a nice layer as they are slightly shrouded in the fog at a distance. The purple sky and warm light […]
