Night Gives Way To Day by John  De Bord Photography

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

The city of Golden and metro Denver, Colorado lay in a sleeping slumber on an early morning as the sunrise starts a new day. Captured from the top of Lookout Mountain, the exposure was about 30 seconds long. It got to be rather cold after a bit but it certainly was worth it to get this shot!

I hope you all enjoy it

    Very pretty capture of sunset over the city. I’m curious what it would look like as a tilt shift… :)

  • Thanks Cahlean, on this shot I don’t think a T&S would work real well, not enough detail, I do have one though that it probably would work on, good idea!
