I arose early yesterday morning and decided to drive up to Blakeney to see if I could get some sunrise photos. Truth be told, I almost always arise stupidly early these day, but I am usually too lazy to bother going out. Yesterday, I forced myself.
I found a spot where I could approach the river to the right of the bridge and navigated my gimpy way down the slope. This was the first photo that I took. It is an HDR (amalgam of 4 exposures). I didn't need to process this as an HDR, but I just do it sometimes because ...
You can see from the foreground that I was on a slight rocky incline, and I decided to go right down to the water's edge for the next photo. I processed this one a little more darkly and vividly. I think I like it better, but perhaps not as my opinion changes from one viewing to the next.
Somewhere between that photo and the next, I had a little mishap; the remote trigger that I was using took a tumble into the water. Right now, it is sitting in a bowl of rice to dry out; my fingers are crossed, but I really don't expect it to work again.
Anyway, I turned around a little to take a shot back toward the bridge. It doesn't have the same light as the other two photos, but I kind of like the composition, and the reflections are good as is the lead-in from the rocks to the left.
I was prepared to stay and take photos of the actual reserve area on the other side of the bridge, but the sun was too low to give me much interesting light over there, so I headed home.
