Dawn at the Pier

Every so often I’ll be out shooting sunrise, and the sky will magically take on this eery orange glow before the sun comes up over the horizon.  While I still prefer a sky full of illuminated clouds, sometimes these single color sunrises can be quite impressive.

This one comes from Martha’s Vineyard from a trip a few years ago.  As the light was still low, I needed a 90 second exposure which added that nice smooth quality to the water.  Maybe not my best composition, but the color certainly made up for it.

Have a great weekend.

    I afree with you the tones are nice, the long exposure is perfect for this photo. The pier and the land divide the frame but the similar colors of the sky and the water “chain” all togheter.
