Crepuscular Rays at Dawn

08 Apr

Crepuscular Rays over Pulau Ubin at 6.51am Dawn before Sunrise

Crepuscular rays are sunlight that looks like torchlight beams that shine through when the sun is covered by layers of clouds or when the sun is below or above the horizon either at sunrise or sunset. Yesterday morning was the first time I saw crepuscular rays at dawn before the sunrise. They cloud layers were too thick for the light rays to be seen clearly. At 0EV, the horizon was a pastel peach and pink. The rays were only visible when the picture was underexpose. This exposure was taken at -1.3EV. Dawn is fast becoming my favourite time to photograph. Sometimes dawn turns out to be more spectacular than the sunrise. 🙂
