"Nov 20 Sunrise"



While I was driving to work today I had to pull over and snap a few photos of this incredible sunrise. Very little post processing done; the color was striking. Hope you enjoy. By the way the "dot" in the air on the second photo (right side) is the Aerostat blimp "patrolling" the southern border.

I like the first one the best, but all are nice. Sunrise is a harder and more fleeting light to capture than sunsets IMO.

A photo teacher once said he preferred sunsets to sunrises since they get better and better the longer to watch them, whereas sunrises are the reverse. It is much harder to capture a sunrise at its best.

I don't usually much care for sunrises (or sunsets for that matter) but these are like gorgeous color field paintings. I particularly like the first. Where is this Dale?

Thanks Scotty, really appreciated. We have been out here for years and have seen these many times before. Now I have the tools and the training to capture these "events" to save for our personal posterity.
Thanks again,

Hi Mark. Sure. No filters, post was in LR5.2. In post I sharpened to 35, used 70 as a masking setting ( used the Alt key during mask to see the edges), and then increased the contrast just a bit because the air had a small bit of haze that drifts north from Mexico. The border towns in Arizona and Mexico have several folks that supplement their heating with wood burning stoves or fireplaces....therefore the haze. I also suspect that the little bit of smoke in the air added to the red, however I'm not sure.
Hope that helps,
Dale.

Beautiful, almost surreal color, Dale. I love fall and especially winter sunrises. Congratulations in your retirement. Question; do you find the 70-200 2.8 a good pairing with D7000?

Hey there Scottie, thanks for the retirement wishes.

As for the 70-200 f/2.8 pairing with the D7000, in a word yes. It is a Fine piece of glass as you know, and it will serve me well if I ever switch to FX format. Right now this and my 24-70f/2.8 are my go to lenses.

When I shot the "ceramics" post ( B&W forum) I was in a small room with six potters and not much light. The D7000 with the 70-200 did a great job at letting me control the dof and "rough" feel that I was hoping for.

My only complaints are with my lack of abilities, not the equipment.
