Early sunshine

Uploaded: May 12, 2008


Taken in wintertime when it was still cold and the sun was low on the horizon. Netherlands.

I love how you captured the light filtering through the tree canopy here. This one is excellent.

I am curious to know what your camera settings were for this one?

Thanks for sharing it!

Hi Rob,
Thanks for your praise and interest. I will be more than happy to share the settings with you but I am offshore at the moment and I don't have the original with me. So I can only guess that it was something like f= 2.8 and shutterspeed around 1/50.
When I get home I will check for you and let you know.

This is a REALLY beautiful early morning capture, Corinne!! Like Rob, I, too, love the way the sun's rays are "filtering through the tree canopy"!! The tones, details, 'mood', depth, textures AND composition here all are LOVELY!! :o) #5915525

A very appealing shot Corinne. Of course the filtered light is beautiful but the soft infusion of muted color makes this image for me. It would look wonderful in black and white also but would lose that special "something" Love it. Dale #5915614

What can I say that everyone else hasn't already mentioned? What a wonderful mood this image conveys. Beautiful capture Corinne. #5915658
