Canon EOS REBEL XS, Promaster 19-35 lens @ 19mm, ISO 100, f/20, 1/4 sec.
  I was hoping that the sunrise on Morris Island Beach would be directly on the horizon in front of me. That way I could get some shots with the clouds, surf, and sun all in the same frame. Unfortunately, this did not happen. The spot on the beach on was on was a more southern facing beach and the sun rose over the land more than the ocean.
  All was not lost, however, There was some beach grass that was in the sand dunes just off the main beach begging to be photographed. How could I turn them down. I used them as a silhouette against the golden glow of the sun after it rose above the horizon.
  Did some cropping after editing the image to get rid of unwanted parts of the beach background. Other than that, not much done with this one.


  1. Beautiful sunrise colors! Love those silhouettes too.

  2. I'm gonna have to go right ahead and give Jose's comments here a 2nd! I, too, love the colors and the silhouettes there, and that touch of a sunburst really adds a bit of drama Jerry. I love this!

  3. Wow! This is so serene! Love it! Good comp.

  4. Great silhouette Jerry, love the colour of the sun and simplicity
