I wanted to shoot a timelape video of the sunrise over one of my favorite spots to sit and relax. I made sure the van was ready to go first thing in the morning, and set my alarm for 4:30am.
I’d like to say that I got up for an early morning run, but that would be a lie. Instead, I dragged myself out of bed, quick shower, poured myself some coffee, and headed out. Its only about 20 minutes from my house, so a short commute.
The fog tends to settle in the valley at this field. Always a nice view if the conditions are right for fog. Throw in some fall colors, and it was great to just sit and watch as the sun rises then scrapes across the field.
The whole time I was there, 5:15am till around 9am, I only saw three other people. A jogger, a dog walker, and a guy that parked and watched for 5 minutes then left. Maybe I was in his spot 🙂
The iPhone6, while very limited as a photographic tool, still does a very credible job of capturing a scene within its constraints. A little tweaking in post and they are very acceptable for web use.
After the spectacle, I stuck around for a while catching up on e-mail and preparing for the upcoming tax season.
