Early Morning Light

Early morning light is amazing. If you force yourself to get up and photograph in the early hours (5 to 7am) the light is very different than any other time of day. It is softer, offering more subdued and gentle colors yet still with good contrast. Shooting in early morning is a great time to photograph water before the wind has picked up and disturbed the surface. When the surface is very still it becomes a beautiful mirror, a great tool for a photographer.
