Sunrise on the Bayou

May has been a quite busy month for me. Between my SO and work, I haven’t had any free time for myself until this morning. I wanted to try a new spot this morning, but construction had closed my main route to get there. I was trying a back road when I noticed the clouds. I thought there was a chance for some colorful skies, so I opted to go to another spot I already knew to get some shots.

I was having an off morning, because this spot isn’t near parking, and it took my three trips to the vehicle to get everything ready. Fortunately, it was a calm morning which allowed for a reflection on the bayou, and I did get some good color in the sky. Here are some shots from this morning:

Sony Alpha 7R IV | Sony 24-70mm GM II | 60mm | ISO 100 | f/11 | 1.3 sec
Sony Alpha 7R IV | Sony 24-70mm GM II | 39mm | ISO 100 | f/11 | 0.6 sec
Sony Alpha 7R IV | Sony 24-70mm GM II | 42mm | ISO 100 | f/11 | 0.6 sec

The bridge I took this from definitely vibrates as traffic passes, so timing shots and getting sharp images wasn’t all that easy, but I was able to get a few shots off in between.

I do like the lush bayou banks with the city standing behind, the sky and reflections really helped.
