    Default Sunrises are under-rated

    This is over Houston. 150 miles away.

    Looks like a direct hit.

    I agree, they are very important. The more of them I'm around for the better……...

    I love the early morning. I esp. appreciate them because I'm rarely around to see them. But waking on the river and peeking out of the boat/tent to greet the dawn is a special thing indeed.

    I was on a delivery at the east end of the Strait of Juan de Fuca for this one with the sun coming up over Mt. Baker:

    Right through school and for much of my working life, I headed directly into the rising sun in the morning and the setting sun in the evening. Many hours of squinting and struggling to see. It gave me wrinkles and ruined my modelling career JayInOz

    Hmmm... the sun coming UP out of the water.

    Beautiful, for sure, but it just seems backward somehow <G>

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    So if a photo is taken with the sun low in the sky, and you are not told if the sun is rising or setting, is it usually readily apparent in the photo?

    Three cell-phone shots taken on the way to work over the last few years.

    sunrise_bridge.jpg

    sunrise_tug.jpg

    sunrise_from_grafton_bridge.jpg

    This last one is through the cast, concrete railings of the Grafton Bridge, the only way to get a clear shot because the anti-jump Perspex screen above the parapet is a scratched-up mess.

    My pain is that the sunrise near winter solstice happens during working hours, near summer solstice in the middle of the night. Colours are also not as pronounced.
    Nice sunrises are much easier to see below the 45th parallel.

    Like these two shot at 36th:

    It's visible to the naked eye, sunrise is softer and more bluish - due to the morning dew, maybe?. The difference gets easily lost on camera, white balance settings can overcome natural differences. The top of my pictures was shot with a sunset camera preset, can you tell it's not? The bottom was shot minutes earlier, with no special presets. To me, the bottom one is obvious. The top one, I might guess it's not sunset but would believe whatever I'd been told.
