I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am already tried
of the cold, dark winter. I am
ready for spring, warm weather and no snow.
As you know, MJ and I went to Miami for Christmas. When we are at home, I stay up late and don’t like to get up early in the morning. But when I am traveling, I do the exact opposite for a few reasons:
I don’t care about the party scene, when everyone else is at the bar/club.
I get great photos very early in the morning during the sunrise (and shortly after) and I am usually the only person around. So I don’t have to worry about people getting in my picture.
That’s how I captured this picture on our trip to Miami. I got up when it was still dark and frankly a little cool outside. I got down to the beach and found the spot I liked to get some great photos. I got my camera/tripod all setup and just watched the sunrise by myself. Then I proceeded to take a bunch of photos. This picture is aimed toward the south with the sunrise on the left (in the eastern sky). I didn’t intend to take photos of the hotels that morning, but as I watched the sun come up, I noticed the beach and hotels looked cool in the early morning light. Here are the specs:
5 set bracketed set of photos (+2, +1, 0, -1, -2)
Nikon D800 in Aperture mode set at f11 and ISO at 100
Processed with Photomatix Pro and minor adjustments done in Photoshop CS6.
I hope you enjoy the picture.
