Sunrise Across the Seas

Five Ways To Get

Here’s an article I did for Idealog Magazine in New Zealand.

Daily Photo – Sunrise Across the Seas

There must be something about the warm air around the equator and the cool sea that churns up these clouds. No matter the morning, there was a new configuration of clouds and light. I got in the habit of setting up my tripod close to the balcony at Amateras so it would be ready in the morning. This minimized my morning wake-up pain. Note that VERY FEW of my sunrise photos are so easy to get… most involve a lot more bodily-morning-travel to find a good spot!

    Beautiful as always Trey! Lately I’ve gotten into the habit of looking at the original on Smug Mug. I don’t know much about photography but I can definitely say your originals on Smug Mug are beautiful down to each and every pixel – very little noise or pixelization. What lens do you typically use for your landscape shots?

  • Bob Prangnell

    I find this one boring. There are too many sunset pics that don’t say anything much, and this is an example.

  • Casper van Zyl

    What can I say Bob, you can please some,some times but not all the time.but I will take first into consideration the amount of work he is doing at this present time as well as for yours truly so that you may enjoy Photos of around the world.Think about those he is teaching and those who have not seen or don’t have the gear to take pictures like this.Yes, it may not be the best but I’m sure anyone out there putting on a show of photos on a daily basis will find it very hard to excel every day.Why not try it and see,we are all sometimes spoilt by the good things in life and a slight change and we differ. I have learnt one thing in life if you don’t like don’t comment,as others find it beautiful,they to will learn that every shot is not always a master piece in time.
    Always a pleasure to see others at work whether good or bad thats how we learn and grow and yet never reach perfection.

    bravo Casper!! πŸ™‚

  • susan ratcliff

    Lovely – the sun looks soooo bright! πŸ™‚

  • Vincent, have a look here:

    Also, on SmugMug you get a little info box showing also the focal length
    (among other things), which was 45mm. So, here I’d say the 28-300mm was
    used. πŸ˜‰

    Trey, thanks for always upping so many different pictures, keep up the good work! πŸ™‚

  • Beautiful photo, Trey!!! Lovely, indeed!!! Have a wonderful Monday πŸ™‚

  • I would use Lightroom and the presets to bring out color, celebrity and creativness in my photography.
