Sanbornton sunrise

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Our last day in New Hampshire dawned overcast, like our first. But we were faced with a 910 mile - 16 hour drive, which thankfully we enjoyed in perfect weather as this was the back of the cold front that had moved over us in the night.

Nice sunbeams, and I have seen them recently in your other shots too. Do they come from the camera adjustments or some filters you use? Strong atmosphere in this photo.

Really good sunrise shot - great way to say cheerio!

Nice one, Jethro, love the mood here! It looks like that extra blade on the aperture thingy is working just fine. :)

PS - looks like a sensor cleaning is on the horizon. I just dropped mine of at Biggs yesterday ... it was beginning to look like a leopard!

Personally Sixten I like the lens flair effect. I shot this on a tripod (oh, no - I have confessed) at f22 so that the flair would be accentuated. The lens I have has extra blades in its aperture that make this effect greater also (as Kevin points out). Try it next time this happens.

Thanks Mike especially as it didn't rain all the way home.

Despite that sky.

Yes it did work Kevin THANK YOU - also I have learned something about lens hygiene - be careful who you swap lenses with. I exchanged lenses with a guy on the summit of a mountain for a few minutes and have picked up crap on the screen and mirror and noticed a blob on this image also - all since that meeting.

Casual lens exchanges are not healthy - practice safe photography!

All the very best this rainy Sunday to you my friends - Jethro

'Casual lens exchanges are not healthy...'

hehe. indeed. you really never know where they've been!

Absolutely Kevin - I also ran clean sensor on the D5100 this afternoon. It took about a second to do it and I have no idea if its fixed or not.

BTW this is my first Lightroom "Development"

Your gonna have to give me some tips.


Kevin Childress on September 17, 2012

Let's do some of that tomorrow, or tonight if you prefer!
