Week 49, Day 341, April 5, 2010, Sunrise at Biddeford Pool

We awoke early to head to the beach before the Sun rise. We were treated to a high tide, cool breezes, and just enough clouds near the horizon for a spectacular view. 

Lessons Learned:
  • I remembered to set the White Balance to flash for warmer colors.  I like the effect it has on Sunrises and Sunsets.
  • The light changes very quickly during a sunrise, and gives interesting effects.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/80 sec, Aperture f/8.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 29 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, tripod.

This is a winner!! I love the larger rocks in the foreground and it leads you right into that sunrise! Great depth and perspective!

I appreciate the difficulty in metering sunrise scenes because properly exposing the bright sky can wash out the darkened foreground.

Here, however, you've balanced the two divergent zones masterfully. Love the feel of the foreground.
