A sunrise image taken at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Palm Coast, FL. This is on the ocean side of the park.
The rock out-cropping in this image is composed of coquina rock, which is a combination of sea shells and sand bonded together with calcite. This rock has been used for construction in the area for centuries.
Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is located south of St. Augustine in the city of Palm Coast. The property was once owned by a distant relative of George Washington. The gardens, located between the coast and the Mantanzas River, were established by Louise and Owen Young.
I'm not normally a fan of images with lens flare, but in this case I made an exception. I think I sort of like the affect it has in this one. The flare is created by the GND's I used in the shot actually, as opposed to the lens. I get very little if any flare with the Zeiss lenses, although the 50 seems to produce more than the others.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
