We had a beautiful sunrise on our final morning in Lake Powell during our houseboat photography trip last month w/ @visitlakepowell . I still can’t believe places like this still exist. We had the entire bay to ourselves for 3 whole days and we barely put a dent in the areas we wanted to explore. I anxiously await our return. Workshops coming soon :). Be sure to read our challenges for the shot for this photo below the EXIF.
EXIF - Single Exposure
Camera: Sony a7s2
Lens: Tamron 15-30 @ f/11
Shutter: 4 seconds
Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber
Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card
Challenges: Weather & energy. After an all nighter of shooting startrails and waiting for Milkyway, we were ready to call it and hike back to our boat as the sun started coming up. With the clouds blocking our Milkyway shooting and motivation to keep going, we almost skipped sunrise. As we started picking up, we noticed the clouds were breaking and getting thinner so sunrise actually had potential to “explode.” And it did just that...twice! The color exploded and calmed down and blew up again! It was awesome. How many times have you walked away with better sunrise photos when your goal was Astrophotography?
