Yesterday morning I woke up at 3am and headed to Brainard Lake, Colorado to photograph the sunrise. It was absolutely invigorating and refreshing with temps at 40 degrees and the wind gusting hard over the Indian Peaks and across Brainard Lake. For a moment I had a reprieve from the gusts and got a somewhat clean wildflower shot with little movement in this 2 second exposure. It sure was gorgeous and the light just danced!
I want to emphasize something here to those of you who are just starting out with photography and want to get better. The biggest thing you can do is make the effort to shoot in good light & wake up at ungodly hours to get on location in time. There is something about photographing in fresh air with no noise pollution, no people and having some of the best light you can imagine. This is perhaps the easiest thing you can do to better your work and best of all it's 100% free! Can't beat that now can ya?
