Sunrise photography in the winter can be a double-edge sword. On the one hand, you’ve got the sun coming up past 7 am, which means sleeping a bit later than you would for a summer sunrise. The other hand is of course a cold hand. As in freezing cold temperatures.
We’ve had some really cold weather here in the northeast the past few days, but I decided to get up this past weekend to see if I could catch a nice sunrise. This image was taken near Loblolly Cove in Rockport, MA, and those two structures you see in the distance are the twin lighthouses of Thacher Island. I had to climb over and around some icy rocks to get to this spot, but was rewarded with really nice color in the sky just before the sun rose. This is not a multi-image panorama, but rather a cropped image that just looked better with these dimensions. Please click on the image for a larger view.
