Rise and Shine!

This picture was shot [again] from my appartment in The Hague. It just gives me this great view over the meadows between Den Haag en Leiden. That morning, the sun was fighting the clouds and the groundmist was floating around over the meadows. The color in the sky was mesmerizing! The blues near me and the reds near the sun. Just wow!

The shot was made back in 2014 and at that time the camera’s in the mobile phones were already getting pretty good. This shot was taken with a Samsung Galaxy S3. The reason for this was the fact that I was just too late to catch this fleeding moment and all I got quickly was my mobile phone to make the shot.

The camera setting was on Aperture Priority. With an ISO set on 80 and the aperture set on 2.6, the most light would come into the camera. The camera then only needed a shutterspeed of 1/400th of a second.
In post I did a bit of cropping and levelling. No other filters or anything. The picture was made on the spot, without any fancy settings, any gear nor any post production. That made this shot a great impulsive photo!
