Power of Sunrise … HDR

Power of Sunrise ... HDR
Eyes Vision
For a great photograph, photo shooting time is as important as the quality of one's equipment ... Maybe even more ...

Great pictures in general call for great sacrifices on behalf of the photographer ... When the rising sun makes his first steady steps over the horizon, the photographer should already be at the desired place, his/her tripod should already be standing on its three feet and the camera's power switch should be set to ON ... That means in general less relaxing time ... Sometimes even no relaxing time at all ...

But why sunrise, why not sunset ???? Isn't it the same ? No my friends believe me it's not ... As Natalie Wolchover clarifies in her article "Do Sunrises Look Different from Sunsets ?" "... At sunset the sky is full of pollutants and wind-borne particles ... During the night, winds die down, smog-producing urban activity eases and the atmosphere cleanses itself. The dawn is clearer than any other time of day."

Also " ... At sunrise ... the night's darkness has left us with very acute night vision and every faint, minor change in the sky's color is evident." In short, you may perceive more colors at dawn than at dusk ... ... And your camera being an acute and technically flawless eye as well, encloses all those differences on its sensor ... The frame seen above was captured on November 2014 at Sidironero, Drama, a few kilometers away from the Greek Bulgarian borders ...
