Dawn to Sunrise - 11 September 2018 (Original Video/Photos)

11개월 전

On this morning there were clouds on the distant horizon. As sunrise approached those clouds turned a shade of pink.

Photographs taken on 11 September 2018.

Sunrise Video

For this photo shoot I focused on the distant horizon then turned off the auto-focus and the image stabilization on my lens. I used a high f-stop to keep both the foreground and background in sharp focus.

The photographs in the video cover a 38 minute time-frame. This video stitches together 110 photos starting 29 minutes before the official sunrise.

Full Video

During the processing of this video a software pan and zoom occurs that focuses on the rising sun through the trees.

All the photographs taken have been compiled into a 4 minute 56 second video. The photographs have not been enhanced, you see what I observed.

Music: "Eternal Hope" by Kevin MacLeod.

The following animated GIF is 38x the speed of the full video.

Sunrise Photographs in Sequence

Dawn: The period of the day when light begins to appear in the sky from the sun.
Sunrise: The time when you first see the sun in the morning.

To give you an idea of the when the photographs were taken I am adding a T-time. T-0 is sunrise, T-10 is 10 minutes before sunrise, and T+5 is 5 minutes after sunrise.

This is a representative sample of the photographs in the video. The photographs have not been enhanced, you are seeing what I observed on this morning.

When I think about how wonderful it is to capture these moments, I often realize how little I had to do with making these wonderful moments. For I am just the guy behind the camera.

Steem on,



I loved this video, especially the approach you made, @etcmike!! It was great. You could almost hear the tone of the trees, a slight movement of their leaves, that filtration of light between the branches. In a word: Poetic! In addition, the music so ideal that you can hardly feel it, is almost the breeze that moves the trees. As always: I congratulate you and thank you for sharing!

Man you are always the best in taking these shots . I love the sunset & sunrise . Every day is the blessing of GOD . 100 💯 upvotes for this 👍
