Bay Sunrise




My intent over the previous few years had been to capture this part of Avalon Bay from a high vantage point before sunrise with the sun just coloring higher clouds.  I envisioned a "soft" pastel photo with pinks and light blues, conveying a peaceful and soft-color quality, to Avalon Bay. The sun position and the clouds I wanted for this composition are rare together, so I was hopeful but also realistic as I set up for this shot in the dark.

I was pleased with the fact that I got some of the cloud affect that I was seeking. However, the sun did not light the clouds until it had risen, and because of that the morning had much-more-than-expected contrast. This rendered a very strong but attractive photo of Avalon with the contrasting morning light and strong complimenting colors.
