Madison River Sunrise

The sunrise photographs I captured along the Madison River are some of my favorite photographs from my recent trip to Yellowstone National Park. This sunrise photograph was taken near one of the pull-outs leading to the Two Ribbons Trail just off of the West Entrance Road. The pull-out is located about 4 miles East of West Yellowstone, MT. Our photography group was heading out for the daily events and we noticed the wonderful sunrise colors. What caught my eye for this location was the fog along the river and the sunrise color reflecting on the river. For this photograph I stepped out onto a shallow portion of the river and setup my tripod fairly low in order to capture the rocks in the foreground.

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II Lens set on 70 mm. The camera was set on Aperture priority mode with the aperture set at f/22, shutter speed at 1/8th of a second and the ISO set at 100. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
