About ‘Lake Maurepas Sunrise’

I captured this image one morning on the banks of the Lake Maurepas just outside of New Orleans. I was standing hip deep in water, with my Nikon D810 held firmly on a tripod as the water gently lapped around me. I arrived at the spot about 30 minutes before the sun was set to break the horizon.

How did I find just the right spot? First, I spent time on Google maps, looking at the satellite view of the western bank for likely shallows with scattered cypress trees. I then turned to The Photographer’s Ephemeris, a program designed to tell photographers exactly where the sun and moon are at any given point in the day. That allowed me to set up and have the image framed long before the sun peaked over the horizon.

The clouds along the horizon were the perfect accent to the scene, adding drama as sunlight silhouetted and muted the brightness of the sun. The result was that the sun could be seen as a ball of fire instead of just a large, bright blot.

All I had to do was wait for the sun to show up through the clouds and start triggering the shutter.

Now this print can remind you of the beauty of the Louisiana swamps — and all you have to do is attend the Louisiana Sportsman Show. So look for the gallery wrap, check it out and put your name in the hat.
