You never know exactly how a morning sunrise will unfold. I got a late start to capturing this sunrise. Yet I am glad I was able to photograph it.
Photographs/video taken on 9 February 2019.
For this photo shoot I focused on the distant horizon then turned off the auto-focus and the image stabilization on my lens.
The photographs in the video cover a 11 minute time-frame. This video stitches together 24 photos starting 10 minutes before the official sunrise.

Sunrise Photographs in Sequence
To give you an idea of the when the photographs were taken I am adding a T-time. T-0 is sunrise, T-10 is 10 minutes before sunrise, and T+5 is 5 minutes after sunrise.
This is a representative sample of the photographs in the video. The photographs have not been enhanced, you are seeing what I observed on this morning.

When I think about how wonderful it is to capture these moments, I often realize how little I had to do with making these wonderful moments. For I am just the guy behind the camera.
