Dawn to Sunrise - 8 August 2018 (Original Video/Photos)

in #photography3 years ago (edited)

On this morning a ground fog obscured the horizon until shortly before the sun rises above the seen horizon.

The forest fires in the western United States are adding to the red tint of the sunrise.

Photographs taken on 8 August 2018.

Sunrise Video

As the photographs were stitched together into this video, I noticed a slight shift from one frame to the next. The photographs in the video cover a 37 minute time-frame.

All the photographs taken have been compiled into a short 9 minute 31 second video. Music: "Blue Danube" by Strauss.

Dawn to Sunrise Photographs in Sequence

Dawn: The period of the day when light begins to appear in the sky from the sun.
Sunrise: The time when you first see the sun in the morning.

To give you an idea of the when the photographs were taken I am adding a T-time. T-0 is sunrise, T-10 is 10 minutes before sunrise, and T+5 is 5 minutes after sunrise.

This is a representative sample of the photographs in the video.

When I think about how wonderful it is to capture these moments, I often realize how little I had to do with making these wonderful moments. For I am just the guy behind the camera.

Me too from UP

Marvelous photography thanks for sharing.


Nice work🤘 Love the blood red sunrise 😍

Rise with the sunrise :)

@etcmike, I personally liked the T-3 because no matter how many times i am watching it, still the lite reddish essence is dominating.

And literally clouds are speaking it's own stories and clouds are complimenting amazingly to all these layers of colours.

And literally speaking every place doesn't hold the same essence of beauty of Sunrise and Sunset and that is the breathtaking aspect.

Keep up and for sure you've captured beautiful aspects of sunrise and in my opinion watching it live will be more amazing scene.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

I was waiting for your new photo shoots. I enjoy your work. it's really good work. I love all photo shoots.

hello mike, I think dawn has a special meaning for you. For me the beauty of a new day, it is hope, it is to leave behind darkness, the cold, to receive the heat and be able to see new people, talk with those we love, share our dreams. I wrote this, hearing the background noise you have put in your video. Once again for your producer and for you, they make wonderful duo. A hug. Ahhh and thank you for supporting me in my post.

Beautiful and magical natural scenes to capture this is a delight to checkout :)

nice sunset photo

No one compete with the beauty of nature!

Nature is nature!

Wow..Outstanding colorful natural photography. At sunrise, it seems that the rays of fire come out of the sky and they are slowly climbing together in the water.

I like those who are really passionate about taking photos of the nature..

Very well posted. The golden sky looks very nice to look at. All in all have been very good. thanks for sharing.

Thank You


So sweet photography sir. thank you for so much.

You would feel lucky to frame something like incredible!! I never tried to get up earliest in the morning to feel the "Sunrise". Now I'm gonna try from today. I know it takes time to get used to but " if there is will, there is a way".

I feel very fortunate to see such sunrises and capture the sunrise in photographs.

I got up early this morning to see the sunrise, but the fog is too thick today. There is always tomorrow!

Have a great weekend!
