Week 15, Day 99, August 7, 2009 Sunrise over Lake Lila, Winner of Week 15 in Onine Viewer Poll


The second morning at Lake Lila I woke up early before the sunrise and took several photos of the moon, followed by the sunrise. This photo is the sunrise with a lot of fog burning off the lake. The combination of the thick fog, the sun, and a calm lake created some interesting photo opportunities.

Lessons Learned:
  • Morning time is an excellent time for photography.
  • Sleeping on the hard ground helps me to rise earlier.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/640, Aperture f/7.1, ISO 100, Focal Length 70 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 113mm, Lens Sigma 70-300mm 1:4-5.6, hand held.

This photo was the winner of the week 15 online viewer poll.

Beautiful!!! I'm going to have to start getting up for the sunrise more when I'm camping. Clearly it's worth it!

I feel like you - morning is an excellent time for taking pictures. But I might need the hard ground too :-). Or winter.

Nice work!
