Morning Shoot

My friends and I decided to take a chance during sunrise at the Hollywood Bowl Overlook (at 10 PM the day before).  It was a great morning.  When I arrived, i could see the clouds were stringy and had some contrast.  

The forecast was showing some overcast skies and 18% cloud cover and a wind of 2MPH.

When shooting sunrise it is important to show up at least 40 mins before so you can get some long exposures of the blue hour colors.

The color starts 20-40 minutes prior to sunrise.

Today's sunrise was at 6:28 am, this is a 16 shot panorama taken at 6:00 am.


Getting to this location is relatively easy, especially if you show up before 6 am.

There are not many spots to park and you cannot park on the road.
