Photo of the Week: Sunrise Through Trees by Jim Martin

Photograph Sunrise Through Trees by Jim Martin on 500px

This photo was taken by blog reader, Jim Martin, with a Fujifilm X-T1 with a Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens at f/1.2 for 1/2000 sec using ISO 200. While driving into work this awesome light display compelled him to pull over and capture an image of natures light show.

This photo sparked a discussion about the importance of having your camera with you at all times. While you can snap a shot like this with your cell phone, when life throws you something special like this you want it to be on your best camera if possible. Of course, don’t ever keep your gear where it can be seen or else you might find it missing when you return! Your car is also a great place to keep your “old” camera so that it is always on the ready. As the old saying goes, the best camera is the one you have with you!

I see lots of winner candidates that aren’t in the contest so I’d recommend that people make my selection process harder by tagging their photos properly today!
