Morning On Mars

 Martian sunrises, as seen by the HiRISE orbiter

David Orias - Waves (2010)

“‘The bold colors and painterly feel in many of my wave photographs are mostly the result of early morning light, camera motion and slow shutter speed exposures, in contrast to the more typical front-lit photos and fast shutter speeds seen in many surfing photographs.’

Using long exposures, Orias captures an otherwise imperceptible color spectrum. He explains that, during wildfire season, the sunlight in Southern California can be refracted and scattered by smoke particles, creating an eerie orange morning light.”
