Dawn to Sunrise - 28 August 2018 (Original Video/Photos)

in photography •  12 days ago

Watching this spectacular sunrise was just a blessing. Even the birds were lining up in mass to see this sunrise. I do not recall seeing this many birds gather to watch a sunrise before.

The smoke in the upper atmosphere from the fires in the western United States is still adding color to sunrise in otherwise clear blue skies.

Photographs taken on 28 August 2018.

Sunrise Video

For this photo shoot I focused on the distant horizon then turned off the auto-focus and the image stabilization on my lens. I used a high f-stop to keep both the foreground and background in sharp focus.

The photographs in the video cover a 43 minute time-frame. The video starts 35 minutes before the official sunrise time.

Full Video

All the photographs taken have been compiled into a 16 minute 26 second video. The photographs have not been enhanced, you see what I observed.

Music: "1812 Overture" by Tchaikovsky. This music was chosen because the musical transitions seemed to match the tone of this sunrise and the number of photos.

Time Lapse Video

The following animated GIF is 200x the speed of the full video. This time lapse does not do this sunrise justice.

Original Video

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. The photographs have not been enhanced, you are seeing what I observed on this morning.

Watch the utility pole and utility lines.

@etcmike, Yes, you are absolutely right about the Sunrise and that means, watching the beauty of Sunrise is blessing.

And yes, birds are really gifted creatures for sure and that is because they got the ability of flying and they can explore the nature's beauty from anywhere.

And that Original Video is awesome and the flow of nature which is reflecting in it, just Breathtaking to watch for sure.

For sure these pictures are really beautiful and those Sun Rays are just amazing to watch and which also holds the soulful essence.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

Beautiful dawn, @etcmike. Impressive the halo of light that comes out as it goes up. Although the first colors to appear in the minute 3, the wonderful spectacle is from minute 11. A beauty! In addition that the musical piece, lavish, was at the height of the moment! To see this dawn listening to the piece Tchaikovsky is paradise. Thank you for sharing.

Is the Promobot working??

I "etcmike" sent in a bid over 7 hours ago.

Promobot1.PNG

Since that time Promobot has not upvoted a post and now has several bids queued.

Promobot.png

According to SteemBotTracker Promobot has not upvoted in over 19 hours.

Promobot2.PNG

There is currently 60 STEEM worth of bids queued up which dilutes promobot's upvote to produce a ROI of far less than the advertised maximum 3% loss.

Please refund my 10 STEEM, because promobot's vote value is worth far less than it was at the time I entered my bid (with 60 STEEM in the queue at the time of this writing).

Thank you!
Mike
