Sunrise along the Oregon Coast. When I woke up on this morning the rain was coming down pretty hard...I decided to go get some coffee down a little beach town near my house and as I got closer to the ocean I could see some light off in the distance. I ended up not getting the coffee until after the shoot. I stood in the rain for a while before the clouds broke and allowed the light from the east to light them up. Because of the clouds and how the sun was coming up, this sunrise seemed to last a bit longer than most.


This is the first image I have worked up in Lightroom 3. I posted it on my facebook page yesterday and most were saying it needed some contrast adjustment. I made the said adj and now I am going to post it here to get your feedback on...
