I set the alarm for 5am and headed out early. I was planning to do a couple of things – photograph the temple at night and check the sunrise.
I was surprised that the temple was already open. I wasn’t very happy with my images but here is a sampler.
I moved rapidly on to the sea front and started to work out where I would get the best compositions. I should have done this is advance. There were two spots. One close by the piers, which I really liked. Then further down I could see more of the actual sunrise and use some dragon boats in the comp. Long exposures and rising blue light. Here are a couple of ok shots.
Although sunrise was officially 06.02 there was no afterburn and I simply wandered back through the town. It was busier than I expected and lots and lots of people were out exercising. Long exercise-congas to music looked a lot of fun. I tried a deliberate motion blur.
I think I may have to try again tomorrow 🙂
