I decided that I needed to make an effort to increase my exercise as walking round the living room flapping my arms about at 11pm to get the last few calories registered on my Apple Watch so I hit my daily target is not exactly helping.

 
Soooooo......I've set my alarm for 6am to head out for an hours walk before breakfast every morning this week. The downside to this madness is I feel worse than I did on Monday but the upside is the dog thinks all his Christmases have come at once and I have witnessed a string of glorious sunrises.....yes I've had a camera with me.
 
Monday was a bit grim with a warm, damp feel to the air so nothing special...

Tuesday it was 3°c (37.4f) which was a bit of a shock to the system and meant getting my down jacket out of the wardrobe for the first time since spring but the light was fabulous:

Wednesday - well Wednesday the sky also looked grim so I didn't pack the Fuji....guess what happened half an hour later :mad:
Still the iPhone shooting with the camera in the Lightroom app did a pretty decent job of relaying the drama...

Thursday the temperature was back down in the single digits but the cloud cover was back...

Friday was lovely again. It was calm, not too cold and the light just seemed to glow.
The first image is five frames layer stacked in Photoshop to give a little movement to the water...

A single frame this time shot from lower down to include a little more foreground interest...

Saturday's sunrise was quite subtle at first with gentle colours and again a calm feel to the beach...

However there was a bit of cloud movement so I set the camera on a tripod and rattled off 999 ( :eek: ) frames at one second intervals then strung them together into a rough time lapse...
 
Sunday - I'm having a lie in, an extra coffee and trying to convince myself that I need to keep this madness up.

God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.

Very nice series

Thanks, Dennis.

Very nice series.

 

I can sympathize as I am up early as well, with our new dog. So far, don't mind it too much, but talk to me in a few months when Old Man Winter shows up.

 

Beautiful countryside!

Well the good intentions came to an abrupt end this morning when the alarm went off and I woke to torrential rain - the dogs walk and todays photographs will have to wait a while.

Ok, let me get this straight....

You live in the U.K.
and
You are staying in because of a little rain?

I have to figure you have a Mac for every day of the week and type of rain!

:P

Get out there and walk your dog!!

:lol:

Great series BP.
Don
==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
