Apart from the lack of crowds, one of the distinctive things about low season in Positano is that the days are quite short.
“You only get one sunrise and one sunset a day, and you only get so many days on the planet. A good photographer does the math and doesn’t waste either.”
But it does make it easier when the sunrises and sunsets are at pleasant hours of the day. There are no excuses!
Standing on the western end of the main Positano beach, you look eastward down the Amalfi Coast to catch the sunrise. The clouds only accentuate the beautiful colours of the sky in the sunrise.
A 3 stop GND and a relatively slow shutter speed meant that a tripod was an important part of ensuring a sharp image.
