The Ayush Way of Sunrise Photography

Step 1: Spring out of bed when the alarm rings and grab camera.

Step 2: Open the door. Get a blast of the rising sun's light on the eyes and squint.

Step 3: Cross the sand to reach this spot. 

Step 4: Mental note to wear slippers the next time to prevent incisions on feet due to pebbles. 

Step 5: Compose and click.

Well, Ayush, your technique seems to yield very good outcomes.
Duly noted. I'll keep it in mind next time I can wake up in time for a sunrise! smile
Beautiful shot by the way - well worth the pain!

You got a truly gorgeous result for your effort. I have been wondering if you are in the Philippines and if you have been left homeless or suffered losses.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Mary.

I have not been to the Philippines since last year. The affected places, Tacloban and Leyte, are some distance away from where I was. What I have seen in the media is heart-breaking. It will require a tremendous effort to get these places back up on their feet. I recall your daughter-in-law is from the Philippines? I wonder if all is ok at their front.
Lesson of the day which works going by this lovely image.
Excellent technique Ayush! The result is stunning. I love it.

Your technique works very well - except for the bloody feet.
Wonderful photo, Ayush and well worth the effort. I have a very similar one of a sunset taken in Barbados.
Great result Ayush!

I've been contemplating doing similar, this winter when the sun is rising through the mist and all is frosty! Although, I'd have to add a line to your instructions about clothingÂ…..and lots of it!

What a wonderful photo - and you must have been happy!
We now think of the poor people on the Philippines and are praying for them ...
This is just beautiful!
Good image Ayush, golden dawn.

Wow!!! what a stunning image smile
The light, colours & composition are wonderful, Ayush. Love how the palm tree comes out as a silhouette. The result was well worth the effort.
