The color was warm and drew me in. Love mornings like this! I hope you have a wonderful day.
It was a special morning in Frisco, Texas. I set up at one of my favorite spots to capture the sunrise. The cirrus clouds in the distance were already started to glow, 45 minutes before the sun hit the horizon. As you can see in the first 2 shots below, the color was spectacular. I noticed fog starting to come in, just in time for the sun to come up! I had one camera set up taking wide shots that I ended up putting together for a time lapse video above.
Here are a few of my favorites below. Click to enlarge and let me know what you think 🙂
I compiled RAW stills to make this un-edited time lapse. It is very rough, but thought it was interesting. I had a secondary camera set up to try to capture lightning and movement of this beautiful isolated thunderstorm over Frisco, TX on 8-26-12. I watched this storm for about an hour. The sun came out and with it this rainbow. The sun also lit up the rain shaft, which had pea sized hail. very dramatic. Love it when the rainbow appears.
Shot with the Canon 5D Mark III using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens. f.22 ISO 100, shutter varied on lighting conditions
