Sun Rising Over Ponte Vedra Beach Florida

After school got out we bolted for Ponte Vedra Beach to spend the Memorial Day Holiday. Monday morning I missed the sunrise by about 30 minutes and instead looked for sharks teeth before the crowd and tide came in. Tuesday morning I made it just in time to catch the first glimpse of the sun cresting over a pillow of clouds at the tip of the horizon. Wherever you are, the sun rising rarely disappoints. Tuesday was no exception.

The first 3 pictures below were taking with my Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 and the last 2 were taken with my 14-24mm f/2.8.

Sunrise Over Ponte Vedra Beach Florida

I went back to some pictures that I hadn’t developed yet to see what interesting goodies I could find.  I really like this one of the morning sunrise over the beach, and the hint of homes on the right.  I used Photomatix to process this.

This week our challenge was to come up with a shot showing the rule of 3rds.  This HDR image was taken this afternoon off the back of our house in Ponte Vedra.  It was forcast to rain all day…turned out to be a pretty awesome day.
