Kiev Sunrises

7th October 2012.

As promised in yesterdays blog, I write to detail my second full day and our sunrise. This time from the waterfront on the Dnieper river.

Day 2 – 7th October 2012

We woke early and left the apartment a little later that Saturday and walked the 1.5kms to the riverfront. We decided today to head down to the churches on the embankment as we passed them on the way home from the first day in the exclusion zone. Despite being quite well-travelled, this was my first time in the Ukraine versus a relatively short amount of time to acclimatize would mean getting all the help we could to explore this city.

Our apartments architecture.

Our initial stop was the Church of the Nativity in Poshtova Square but it was surrounded by construction traffic and some major road works so we pressed on to the banks of the river and the Church of St. Nicholas.

Time was given for walking and having time to set up cameras to wait for the light. Sunrise was 7:05am so given our pace we had about fifteen minutes to set up.

The light this morning was not as impressive as the Saturday but was still a nice scene. I composed, captured, processed and edited this one from the banks below:

Following this, we walked our way back up the descent road and on to breakfast and our 2nd day trip to the exclusion zone.

Since yesterday I have processed another image from the first mornings sunrise. The first time I have photographed traffic trails in HDR.

Thanks for reading.
