Nice shots did you use ND filters or just expose for the conditions?

Thank you. I didn’t on this one although I’m currently in the market for some ND filters so just doing some research.

Started pre-sunrise at around 1/160 with ISO at 100 but obviously had to crank that up as the sun rose, ended up around 1/2000 and flicked between 100 and 200 ISO but then lost all of my foreground which was a shame as the mist on the ground was amazing. So yeah set of NDs on the shopping list!

Thanks for the reply, Mike. Just at the same stage myself in terms of research, use them on my dslr just needed to decide on a manufacturer for the drone :face_with_monocle:

Awesome photos although I don’t understand how you can have got up at a time that doesn’t actually exist! Well, not in my world anyway!

Yeah me too, there are a couple of threads on this forum that have some good tips. Today was my first time without the AUTO function on the camera so that’s enough adventure for one day!

Thanks! I keep telling myself the pictures are worth it, but I’m crashing hard right now!

Great pics! sets 5am alarm

Claim these as your own and save yourself!

Joking aside, if you are looking to do it, BBC Weather gives you a good estimate at Sunrise, but I would shave 15 mins off as I just missed the start. So in summary get up even earlier!

Hehe… I actually did check the sunrise times a couple of days ago.
More from not too many people around than beautiful golden hour shots.

I’ve been out for a short time today and realised I need a few more hours on the simulator. Videos of me crashing my quad into the ground are not something I want people to see :blush:
