Getting up early to catch the sunrise in Singapore is one of the rarest things to do. Most of the time we would be catching sunrise overseas in places such as on the mountain, over the horizon, in the plane or on board a cruise. I had my sunrise shots at Sembawang Beach, located end of Sembawang road. It was a fairly cloudy morning, but the pictures captured could tell the mood and setting of the early morning activities. The clouds did covered up the initial sunrise that emerged from the horizon but that was not a bad thing anyway. Most of us were more interested in the first view of the glaring sun, but well.. Sometimes things do not always seem to be what it is. Make the best out of what you see! My camera settings had been adjusted to 2 modes of sunrise mood: the natural setting and the lowlight setting.
Natural Mode (basically following what the sky was projecting):
Low Light Photography Mode:
Sunrise photos always portray a very calm and serene feeling on an early quiet morning. A moment of quietness and the very few activities floating around start the day off peacefully. As the day gets brighter, and the sun rises up into the sky litting everything around me, the calmness and tranquility in me too subsided and the busy routine life returns.
