CommentI got up before dawn to try and capture a sunrise shot on Princess Royal Harbour. As I pulled up there was this intense glow across the water from the sun popping up from behind a large sea fog cloud that about an hour later rolled over. I spotted this pair of Swans swimming together towards the sun and ran down the path ahead of them to get them silhouetted in the shot as they got closer to the sun's reflection. Shot with manual exposure set at F/11, 1/640 and ISO 800. Uncropped, and post processing was limited to slightly reducing highlights, minimal noise reduction, and removed 4 black specks in the distance that were other birds on the harbour and a bit distracting to the overall image.
EquipmentCanon EOS 5D MKIII, Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Sports lens
LocationPrincess Royal Harbour, Albany, Western Australia
