Sunrise on the North Shore of Lake Superior
Created with the Timelapse+ VIEW Intervalometer (timelapseplus.com) auto-ramping and the Fuji X-T2 with a Samyang 12mm f/2.0 lens.
Since the sky was mostly clear, I wasn't expecting a particularly spectacular sunrise. As such, I decided to set up the frame looking to the South West, where the last of the Milky Way and an especially bright Mars was visible. Once the sun did begin to rise, however, I was second-guessing myself since right before sunrise the Eastern horizon had a nice orange gradient (while the camera's view was quite drab still) and the first break of the sun was a brilliant deep orange. Still, the first light on the rocks in the camera was very nice, and once the sun was above the horizon there wasn't any color, just a very high-contrast scene. So in the end, I was happy with the framing as it was. Still, next time the ideal solution would be to just setup a camera in each direction!
