I knew the sunrise on the morning of this week’s pictures wasn’t going to be spectacular due to the lack of clouds in the sky. So I decided the trick would be to zoom in close and use it as a background to paint a picture. So that’s what I did with today’s photo. This is one of the many trees that line the walk along the beachfront. By the way, this beach was completely destroyed by Hurricane Isabel a couple years back and had to be all redone before it could be opened to the public. The work they are doing there is almost complete, and it looks wonderful! OK, maybe the pub could use a little work, but it is right there on the shoreline getting all that moist salt air. That can take a toll on a building’s exterior.

Little disappointed on how this one scanned in, not sharp like the print. Sorry about that. Minolta Maxxum 7000 Kodak Ultra Color ISO 400 1/15 f-22 Aperture Mode Sigma 70-300mm zoom @ 85mm

*Well, I really thought today’s image was going to load on Blogger, but it didn’t.

My comment box wasn't working this morning, and so I had made a second post with today's comments regarding this photo. Blogger has their comments boxes back working again, so I deleted that post. Gregg Peterson of My Chicago had made a nice comment on today's photo on that post. It was deleted along with the post, of course. Be sure to check out his site today....he has some beautiful photos of Chicago on there. My Chicago

Micki, you'd captured some nice colours across the horizon. I like the long grass (sorry, forogt what they are called.) on the bottom left, but I not pleased with the tree. I felt that it was a distraction. :)

Those are very beautiful colours. Love how the orange is juxtaposed against the blue. But i agree with 壁虎 that the tree competes too fiercely for attention. That weakens the picture as a whole.

Wow. Beautiful! The colors are amazing and the contrast is great. I'm impressed that there's no post-processing. Don't give in to the temptation!

Beautiful colors (especially the water) and the tree makes for almost an abstract object as it is all backlit. I only wish I could see the top of it...

(As an aside, my hat's off to you getting all of these sunrise pics. Do you ever sleep?)

The hues of the sky are great in this shot. I like the silhouette (is that how its spelled?) of the tree!
