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.
