Earlier this week, I tried to photograph the sunrise and made any number of mistakes. Key among those was a failure to focus in live view and a failure to adequately stabilize the tripod. Today, during the brief splash of colour, I hung a 15 kg bag of stones from a hook on the tripod to stabilize it, took greater care and attention, and changed the lens. The compressed jpeg below is not as sharp as the master. I am though much happier with this result than Tuesday’s failure.
