Landscapes and Seascapes

Tequila Sunrise in Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
Yet another gorgeous sunrise, and here we, the camera, the equipment, sun, sea, and surf, even the birds. But alas, the model has overslept and this gorgeous light…will be enjoyed by me and birds, and now you! I did not intent to be shooting seascapes and was prepared to start shoot the very second the model arrived…so the equipment section below will indicate I am NOT prepared to capture this gorgeous glimpse of the sun as it peeks over the horizon, but I do hope you like the image.

Location: Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D300, Nikkor 85mm 1.8 prime lens, no filters, no tripod, just hand help point, frame, meter, and shoot. ISO 200, f/5, 1/100sec.

  1. The colors are awesome, and the fact that the bird made its way into the corner is just perfect.

  3. Wow, I lived near the beach almost all my life but I’ve never gotten up early enough to see sunrise over the ocean… I think I should start! Gorgeous – especially with the lil seagull in the corner!

    Beautiful! I love the Carolina’s and being land locked in the midwest, this makes me want to plan a week on the beach!

    The horizon line alone is worth the price of admission Stan but the added colors are just to much to take.
