Lever de soleil au Rothenbachkopf

Mountains in the orange light of the rising Sun
“Lever de soleil au Rothenbachkopf”, Rothenbachkopf mountain, Alsace, 2007.

Here it begins, more than ten years ago, on a mountain at dawn, taking this picture, that would drive me to go further and further in the art of photography.

At that time, I had only a Kodak compact camera, which was rather lower-end and already outdated at the moment, and I used it in full auto of course. Hence a lot of waste, but it would be unfair to blame the camera for all of them, as I was also very inexperienced at the time.

I’ve kept only few images of this time: as my quality requirements grew, a lot of images, which seemed good before, became perceived as not-that-much good finally and found their way to the bin. But this one, as a few others, has stayed. I forgive its low definition, because I still like its composition and colours.

Tools and exifs:

  • Kodak Easyshare C633
  • 18mm
  • 1/289 s.
  • f/4.8
  • ISO 80
