Autumn is well and truly with us here in the North East of England. Damp air from the sea with wind that freezes your joints. So its obviously time for sunrise photography. I always maintain that sunset photography is easier that sunrise because you can see the sky and clouds before you commit to taking photographs, whereas sunrise photography is a lottery because the sky is dark when you commit to go on location and the is no idea of what you might get. Additionally it will be warmer for sunset photos too.

I digress. Here is a shot of St Mary’s Lighthouse taken this morning as the sun was rising. In truth, I never saw anything of the sun, it just hid behind the clouds, lucky they were thin enough to let some of the fiery light though.

Canon 450D
Canon 18-55mm Lens @ 44mm
25 seconds f/14 at ISO-400
B&W ND1.8 and ND0.6 grad

P.S. I also noticed that the tone of my upload was darker than the original on my hard-drive, even though I was viewing it on the same monitor. I also noticed that the RB sharpening has produced a noticeable white line between the sky and the lighthouse where there is not one on my original. Hopefully this will not be the case if anyone wants a print etc.
