Dawn to Sunrise - 12 August 2018 (Original Video/Photos)

3년 전

On this morning I got setup shortly before sunrise. The fog was gently hugging the ground on this morning.

The forest fires in the western United States are adding to the red tint of the morning sunrises.

Photographs taken on 12 August 2018.

Sunrise Video

As the photographs were stitched together into this video, I noticed a slight shift from one frame to the next. The photographs in the video cover a 33 minute time-frame.

All the photographs taken have been compiled into a short 1 minute 49 second video. Music: "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" by Tchaikovsky.

Dawn to 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.

In the following photo captured birds flying by. The exposure time makes the path of the birds flight look like a line. As soon as the birds cleared the area, I took the next photo.

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.

I'm just a little minnow swimming around looking for fellow fish to friend. "Fish are friends, not food!" (Finding Nemo reference) But seriously, I read this post and looked through some of your others. I love the sunrise and your reflections. God Speed!

Here's that sunrise as a painting


Really cool!

Have a great week!
Steem on,


wonderfull photography dear


Wow. This is beautiful

Sometimes I think that if you do your videos/photoshots is only to share the moment you love when the conditions are just perfect and unexpected. That excitement when everything is perfect, when you know the picture will be great, the fraction a second before pushing the button... that moment, I am sure you know what I am talking about. That moment is photography and photography is a lonely passion. Sharing it in videos can make it real for you, you can then share that feeling with 'people' who understand ... Just a thought though ... Nice shots @etmike again and again!


@ectmike thanks for your work, videos and pictures. I am always motivated by your videos to get my backside off, take my snow shoes, camera gear, tent and hiking in the mountains and find compositions for my time lapses or panorama shots.

Thanks for your inspiration.

Keep it up!

One of the greatest thrills of being a landscape photographer is when the sky or conditions change into something amazing, and you know you only have minutes or seconds to capture it. What a thrill. Your enthusiasm really translates to the viewer, thanks for sharing @etcmike, sectacular images!

i also inspire to shine like the sun along with the new day.When the sun At that time the sun does not get so hot. turns out it is red and looks very beautiful. At that time we can see Suraj with a straight face. sunrise brings with it new excitement and hope.
thanks mike sir, for capturing these moments and sharing all of us.

Great video and wonderful shots. Loved them.

good work the results are amazing

Nice shots!

What beautiful view

Another Good Pic super hit Thank You Sir, for sharing pic.

Great work!

@etcmike, For sure the weather is reflecting as somewhat foggy and all the environment have the Lite cover essence.

Yes, whenever we see the heavy Fire then for sure the effect of fire can be seen in the sky and in the environment.

And in my opinion in these pictures we are getting to see the three coloured layer and it's giving an pleasant essence.

And at the time the Sun is just visible giving an awesome and breathtaking essence and it's reflecting as an fireball is getting visible.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

wow!!! that's magnificent....
Today i also capture amazing beauty blooming at port side of my city.

Amazing! Something truly magical about watching the sun rise.

Wow. Those photos are so amazing!

Great locations and pictures are excellent. You have the best choice. These places appear to be heaven.

Awesome photos! I liked it very much!

Its really nice.everyday i wake up in the morning and see this beautiful sun rise

sunrise is very shining, as if changing the spirit more cheerful for human life, truly God created this so perfectly

In the event that you are in an excellent place where you can appreciate dawn and nightfall, at that point you are living like a ruler.


My house (and back windows) are oriented somewhat southeast. I have a great view of the sunrises but not the sunsets. This is why I photograph the sunrises and occasionally a full moon rise.

Have a great week!
Steem on,

nice photography

Today's beginning was once again great glorious natural colors to observe :)

love that you give so many details of your photography

let me add this to your post.

it rises slowly, but gets there fast.
it warms peoples hearts
all through the day, above.
that's where it starts
never stops smiling,
unless some grumpy cloud
gets in its way.
there it comes again.
the sun, it came up again.

that mist looks so great .

Really all the photographs amazing! Nicely taken all the stages of sun raising ,that really wonderful, also beautiful your video that enjoyed lots.

Wow I like. Nice photography

I like the capture more on how a preview of the sun is seenfrom a a far and then full at large.
Superb captures. From daily watching your dawn pictures, got inspired and hope you'd want to see how I made my tiny posts of the sunset. Thanks.

Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.
The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.
But yours,
is your ultimate
