Be early for sunrise shots
OUT of all the sunrises I have been fortunate enough to see and photograph, I would have to say this sunrise shot at the Tweed Sand Pumping Jetty on the Tweed Coast is probably the most spectacular one of all.
Luckily, it was close to home which made it easy to get there and set up well before the sunrise.
I think that brings up a good point.
If you are planning on going out to photograph a sunrise, get there early.
When I first started in photography, I would go out for sunrise but only arrive around 15 minutes before the sun came up, which in most cases is when the sky really starts to colour up and where you get shots like this.
After a bit of practice and many early mornings, I would suggest 45-30 minutes before the sunrise so you can find a composition you like and shoot through the whole sunrise to get the image you want without running around and unintentionally missing the shot.
Settings for this image were ISO50, f/11, 0.5-seconds shutter speed.
Sunrise coming up at the Tweed Sand Bypassing jetty on the Tweed Coast provides some dramatic imagery.
