Enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise paint the landscape with color.

So – you’ll need to be up bright and early, and as you might well have guessed, the sunrise time will change depending on season and location in the world!  I always like to arrive at least two to three hours before the sun rises just to set up and for peace of mind.  I’ve managed to almost miss them in the past due to not doing much planning and running around looking for locations so get there early!

Once at the location, if you’ve not done a recce before, have a look around and find your best spot – it’s always worth a walk around and taking some long-exposure test shots to get an idea of framing and foreground features. Once you’ve got a rough idea, it’s time to get that compass out!
