The Land Of The Rising Sun

No, I didn’t take a trip to Japan.  Early yesterday morning I decided to visit the beach to see if I might catch the rising sun.  September usually offers clear skies in the early mornings on the north Oregon coast and yesterday’s adventure was well worth the drive.

Man, I'll say, it was worth the drive. This is awesome!

Thanks Monte. The funny thing was that I almost gave up and went home because of the fog in the foreground.

Beautiful! That fog makes the shot all the more interesting.

I agree Deanna, it was the fog that made the image.

Paul said...

I should say so, Steve. Wonderful shot!

Thanks Paul. It's the first time I've seen the sunrise look like this. The smoke and haze from the forest fires on the east side of the state didn't hurt either.

Great photo Steve. I love that little layer of morning fog/haze that's catching the beautiful light of the sun.

I agree with you Earl that the fog makes the image.
