2/366 - Bright Ideas

Bright ideas are all around us, we have but to look.


This was my back-up shot from this morning. My original intent when I left the house at 5:50 a.m. was to capture a stretch of coastline I scouted a few days ago. I realized as dawn neared that the rocky beach where I set-up faced a bit too far north and the sunrise would be obscured from my vantage point by a rocky outcropping so I grabbed my kit and hurried down the beach, arriving just a few minutes before sunrise. I fired off a few frames of distant fishermen silhouetted against the brightening horizon but a quick review told me those were not my shots either. So, I went with my original plan B. I brought this bulb with me with intent of trying this kind of shot and when I looked at the results, I was pretty happy with it. So, here it is, two down... 364 to go.
