Early in the day is great to capture some great shots.
Look out for:
- Mist & Fog
Use Exposure compensation or full manual to capture the light as you see it.
For the following shot I used
- Aperture f/5 to get increased depth of field
- Shutter 1/125 to get a nice bright photo
- ISO 200
Tip: You will need a nice clean lens to shoot into the sun.
