Cloudless Sunrise over Naples

The weekend is quickly approaching and with it our trip to Austria, St. Anton to be exact. Assuming the Airport strike doesn’t hit too hard, we will be skiing in wonderful powder by Saturday morning.  Needless to say since this is the first ski trip of the year I am giddy with excitement.

I wanted to share a quick video I shot at sunrise from Mt. Vesuvius during our hike this past weekend.  I took it with my D7000 and 10-24mm wide angle (you can see the curvature in the sides when the camera rotates) at 720p.  Youtube probably reduces the quality a good amount, but this really is the first time I have used the video function of this thing – and I have had it over a year now.

Here is the shot I took when the sun popped over the horizon.  No clouds but I still like how it turned out.

Thanks for visiting!

    Beautiful colors Adam! The video function on my Canon goes largely unused…guess I need to do more with it!

    That’s a very special sunrise. I love the film of mist hanging over the valley in the distance. I never tire of seeing images of sunrise and sunset – to two seem to be the same. Great work, and neat little video.
    Enjoy St Anton. Looking forward to seeing your posts. Stay safe!
