…morning light is magic…

Foggy Sunrise

The fog was very thick all the way to Bolivar.  The sun peaked through the fog  just as I had hoped.  I laid down to catch the Godwit’s and the moved to the poles to get the Great Blue Heron on its perch.  The sun was fairly high up for the GBH shot so I had to use more negative exposure compensation to keep the sun from blowing out too much.  Interesting tip about the 7D, you can go beyond the -3 stops in exposure compensation that shows on the camera.  If you keep turning the dial, you can get much lower.  The 3rd photo was taken at -5.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens

    Who would have thought you could go 5 under with EC? I keep trying to hold off until the next version comes out to see if they shrink the MP back to something that reduces the noise.

    Nice job on capturing the color and feel of the sunrise.

  2. Thanks Doug. I found out by accident one time. Maybe should try it on your camera as well. Who knows…
