Sunrise Blues

Road to Sycamore Canyon, AZ

Up at 5 AM and then a half hour drive plus set up to be there just before the sun came over the hill at 6 AM. Minutes after the sun shines on the flowers, the sun is too bright for any more shooting of good images. Also during the day the flowers close up and only come back out at dusk.

Canon EOS 350D ,Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/ USM
Set at ASA 100, 18-55mm lens at 18mm, F10 @ 1/20 sec, RAW, Auto WB, and manual exposure and focus full exif

other sizes: small medium original
