I have a love-hate relationship with sunrise shoots. As much as I hate getting up early on weekends I adore being out there all by myself listening to the sounds of nature waking up. This is especially true with lakes. If there is one thing I hate more than getting up early it’s being rushed when looking for compositions, so I arrived more than 30 minutes before sunrise at this spot, as I wasn’t sure what composition would work. The spot is located just outside a nature reserve that is populated by thousands of birds. At first there was no sound at all. The water was completely still, and the birds were still asleep. Then, as sunrise came closer the first birds started to make themselves heard and seen, slowly emerging from the reeds that serve as protection zones. The sounds they produced only added to the tranquility and peacefulness of the scene, and this picture tries to capture this very relaxing mood.
