We went camping recently at a very secluded 18,000 acre hunting camp in the upper Adirondack Mountains. I always get up for the sunrise when we go camping. 80-90% of the time, it’s either cloudy or just not much color. Well this time it did not disappoint! The color and clouds were spectacular. I was shooting both video and still pictures so there was flurry of activity for about 8-10 minutes during the peak color. This is a panorama I stitched together in Photoshop from 3 different shots (I then cropped it slightly for better drama):

This is one that is closer and a single shot.
Shooting in RAW is definitely the way to go so it can be dialed in afterwards in post! I also used a tripod and set it to a 2 sec. timer shot so there is no shake in the camera from triggering it.
…and a few more!
