Red Dawn, Red Sunrise at Serangoon Reservoir

17 Mar

Sunrise at Serangoon Reservoir. Punggol Promenade/Punggol Waterway on the left, Lorong Halus Wetland on the right.

What a beautiful gorgeous sunrise we had today. Some mornings could be so magical. Technically, it was not yet sunrise since the official sunrise time was at about 7.13am. This picture was taken at 7.04am, so a red dawn seemed more appropriate. The red hue lasted less than 5 minutes. Minutes later, the color changed to a golden hue instead. No filter, no post processing. Just a little trim to make this a landscape panorama and that’s it.

Specs : F11, 1/5sec, ISO 100, -1.3EV, White Balance =  Shade, Aperture Priority, Camera Setting = High Saturation. Taken with AF-S Nikkor 35mm lens. The good thing about this lens – it is much sharper than the kit lens. The down side is there is no Image Stabilizer, so either need a tripod or a steady support for sharp pictures.

Have a lovely weekend, everybody!
