Description
I was on a photo shoot with members of the Landscape and Wildlife special interest groups of Easton, Maryland's Tidewater Camera Club. I was up on a raised observation platform with a few of the members, waiting for the sunrise, when I realized that I had to walk back down to ground level to get a tighter composition on this scene. Only two of the other seven members of my group chose to join me. This was a hand-held shot using a Sigma 10-20mm lens on a Nikon D7100 DSLR. I stopped the aperture down to f/16 to get the sunburst effect. Auto ISO gave me 1600 and I set the shutter speed at 1/80 sec.
