While I love the red leaves, I have plenty of photos like it. Yet, I don’t have any photos framed quite like the freighter. However, I went classico. This is a rare exception of this journey when I was a renting a 200mm lens, and while there are many classic sunrise photos, there aren’t any I can recall with a telephoto. Across the spectrum of sunrise (and sunset) photography, telephoto photos of the sun over water, have never been my favorite. But in the spectrum of this project, I think it’s important that still gets represented, despite these compositions oversartuating what we typically see as sunrise/sunset photography.

Is this the Novaya Zemlya effect, or something else?
