Tampa Sunrise

Taken this morning near the Howard Frankland Bridge. The sun appears large due to the distance from downtown Tampa (around 13 miles) and the focal length of the lens, which is equivalent to 672mm on a full frame / 35mm camera. If you try a shot like this, please only use your camera's live view!


For those looking to get a shot like this with landmarks, use the site The Photographer's Ephemeris to line up sunrises, sunsets, moonrises and moonsets.
