Sunrise over typical dutch setting
This picture was shot in October 2011 when I used the camera of my wife to shoot an amazing sunrise. Wow, I just love the early monrings when the nature is still calm, the energy is pooring in and tranquility is everywhere. This morning made my day because there was such a nice groundfog! I knew a little bridge in the middle of the meadows where I normally run (my 5 km point) and the atmosphere there was so great!! I have come back there many times now and this small place keeps being photogenic!
Back in 2011, I did not have a DSLR, however my wife had one. So I borrowed hers and just went for it. At that time having no real knowledge about photography and not knowing the camera gives some challenges so I just set it on Landscape mode. That was I think the most suitable for that situation 🙂
The ISO was set on 100 and the camera itself then figured out that an aperture of 8 and an exposure of 1/160th of a second would yield the best result. I did not use any other gear during the making of the photo; it was taken from the hand.
In post I did nothing. Because those days I had nothing with postprocessing. The photo should already look good in my opinion, straight from the camera. Otherwise, the photo would show a world that just was not there. Nowadays, I look a little bit different to it, because some post processing just gets the atmosphere back in a photo. So, the picture was made on the spot, without any fancy settings nor post-processing. That made this shot a great impulsive photo!
