Dawn’s Early Light
Somtimes, you just have to be there. Steaming hot coffee in hand, peace, quiet, the sounds of the surf calming the freyed ends of your nerves. The colors of of the pre dawn light change, dance, and play in the reflections of the sea, in the tidal pools on the sand, and in the playground of your mind. Each one of us is different, and for each of us the sea has it’s own meaning, it’s own beauty, it’s own sanctuary for our souls. They say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder; I feel it is also in the hearts and minds of the beholden. The display before me happened without calculation for weather, tempertures with humidity, tidal calcuations…it just happened. And I was fortunate enough, to just be there.
Location: Myrtle Beach, SC USA
Equipement used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 85 1.8 prime lens, open heart, open mind, hot coffee, and patience.
Tequila Sunrise in Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
Yet another gorgeous sunrise, and here we are..me, 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.
