Light Wakes

First light over the Simonsberg mountains, Franschhoek, South Africa. A magnificent morning before the sun rose over the mountain tops to illuminate the clouds and mountains in the distance, at about 6:40am :-) Without the sun everything was a calming ligt blue colour.


Shot with a tripod using a Canon 24-105L t f20 and ND8 neutral density graduated filter

HDR processed as a single RAW in Photomatix Pro 3.1

Sharpened slightly adjusted in Photoshop CS3
